The Eco Design Advisor Conference 2019
The 2019 Eco Design Advisor conference will place housing firmly in the centre of considering the latest research on climate change, and will explore the implications for how we build and design housing now and into the future.
The conference will look at both the contribution housing makes to climate change AND how our housing needs to respond to the impact of changing climate.

Change occurs across scales and between many aspects of society, land and design. A change can be a planned event, such as a technology advance, and we react to this with a modicum of adjustment. However, change sometimes occurs rapidly, without warning, and leads to major changes to the systems in place. These encourage innovation, creativity and a rewiring of existing thinking – this type of change is disruptive. While we may malign DISRUPTION with a nuanced negativity, it ultimately forces us to critique what we know and how we operate in an urgent manner and provides us with an opportunity to progress by abandoning those lines that were limiting us.
