Join us on Tuesday 24th March for a discussion on the value of zero carbon and what this might look like for Birmingham’s City Council climate declaration. Our speakers are Tim Coleridge, course leader at the Centre for Alternative Technology, forerunner in the Zero Carbon Britain methodology and UK leading experts on sustainable testing. And Philippa Birch-Wood, the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) Local Network Coordinator for Birmingham and the West Midlands.
They will be giving an overview of what Zero Carbon is and their definitions with a detailed review of sustainability and adaptation of buildings and the built environment including e.g. mitigating operational and embodied energy/carbon, net-zero building standards, low-impact natural materials and some strategies for low energy design and adaptation
This is part of a series of talks hosted by the BAA in collaboration with practitioners who are notable for their sustainable approach to Practice to achieve key climate deadlines. There are already lots of groups working towards this goal in the Midlands and this will add to the conversation with the aspiration to achieve sustainable change.
