Those with coastal cities face the dangers of sea-level rise\, while those that are land-locked face growing heat islands: all have to contend with urban waste and traffic pollution. These challenges demand new solutions and require modified infrastructures\, whether these involve more EV charging points or better sustainable drainage systems. Technology will greatly help but other\, non-technical remedies will also be required. \nThis webinar will look at different solutions to the same problems but in different geographical settings. Delivering robust net-zero infrastructure solutions and generating a circular\, resilient\, sustainable economy that focuses on sharing\, leasing\, reusing\, repairing\, refurbishing and recycling existing materials and products for as long as possible will help tackle our global challenges of climate change\, biodiversity loss\, and waste. Speakers from around the world will reveal a diversity of views and approaches to this vitally important subject. \nChair: Peter Hall\, Vice President\, Global Director for Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure\, Wood plc \nSpeakers\nNayaz Mohammed\, Partner\, Middle East Practice\, PwC (Dubai) \nRichard Palmer\, Director of Global Sustainability\, Integral Group (Cape Town) \nHeather Rosenberg\, Associate Principal in the Americas\, Arup\, and founder of the Building Resilience Network (Los Angeles) \n(In partnership with PwC)[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Register to the webinar” link=”|target:_blank”][/vc_column][/vc_row] URL: LOCATION:Online Event CATEGORIES:Webinar ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
