New London Architecture

Resilient cities: preparing for climate events in the UK

Talk

Thursday 04 November 2021
10:00 - 11:30

As an industry, how do we move beyond the reactive and adopt a proactive approach to tackling climate change?
The climate resilience of UK cities is urgent and collaboration is critical. Following the launch of NLA’s latest report Resilient London in October and during the first week of COP26, we bring together UK cities for a discussion about how cities can plan and adapt to climate change while also massively driving carbon emissions.
 
As an industry, how do we move beyond the reactive and adopt a proactive approach to tackling climate change? How can we learn from our neighbours and work together to align city strategies to create a cohesive and comprehensive plan?
