Sustainable Built Environment Conference

The global climate crisis requires us to develop new understandings of how we want to live, work, consume and build in the future. As a juror for the Sustainable Built Environment Conference I reviewed architectural, planning, and design proposals seeking to foster climate neutral, affordable and creative design solutions to transition our built environment towards sustainability. The key topics included: Resource Management and Material Flows, Climate Neutral Buildings, Post-Fossil Infrastructures, Natural systems and biodiversity in urban planning and design, Critical Digitalisation, Socio-Political Frames for Transitions,

The sbe22 berlin D-A-CH conference as part of the SBE conference series campaign 2021 – 2023 was hosted by the Natural Building Lab of TU Berlin in cooperation with KIT Karlsruhe, ETH Zürich and TU Graz. The conference was closely connected to the EU Commission’s recently launched environmental, cultural and economic project “New European Bauhaus of the 21st Century” as part of the European Green Deal.
