Book tickets


We all want a built environment in Scotland that is fit for purpose and fit for the future. There are many challenges facing place making now and more on the horizon, including a climate emergency, resource scarcity, and low levels of health and wellbeing. These challenges can be met or prepared for, by making the places we live in, work in and play in, and the associated businesses and their supply chains, more circular, resilient and future proof.

This event, delivered in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland, Resources Futures and the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, will bring together architects, planning consultants and public sector planners to consider the current issues and explore a range of solutions. Join us to hear from our speakers and be part of the discussion on how we can plan and design a future built environment fit for a low carbon, resource efficient population.

The event will also provide the opportunity to find out more about the unique free service from Zero Waste Scotland, designed to support those interested in realising the opportunities associated with the circular economy in planning, design and construction.
