      Two Degrees: The Built Environment and Our Changing Climate (1.5 HSWs)

      Responding to climate change involves both mitigation and adaptation, and these impacts prove to be particularly profound on the built environment. Come hear from two leading climate practitioners, Cole Roberts and Alisdair McGregor, of Arup, as they present their recently released book and emerging thoughts from within their firm.

      Two Degrees: The Built Environment and Our Changing Climate provides a clear framework for communities, policy makers, planners, designers, developers, builders and operators to help manage the impacts, and capture the opportunities, of our changing climate.


      This program will run as a presentation as well as a conversation among attendees.  Topics covered will be based on audience interest and may include:

      •  Passing 400ppm – Mitigation & Adaptation
      •  Net Zero Energy Building
      •  Climate Positive Communities and Ecodistricts
      •  The Psychology of Choice
      •   Risk, Vulnerability, and Integrated Adaptation. 
      •   New science.  Are we working on outdated information?
