Future Planning conference announced

The Ecosystems Knowledge Network are excited to reveal the upcoming Future Planning conference. This event will run on the 8th October 2019 in Glasgow.

Continuing trends towards urbanisation and the pressing realities of a climate emergency require us to urgently revaluate how we plan, design and build the ways we live in and move around our urban environments. A step change in the scale, pace and culture of delivery is needed.

This innovative and timely event will bring together key stakeholders and agencies across the planning, housing and built environment sectors to address the following themes:

  • What does ‘future proofing’ mean, and what is the need for it?
  • What is the role of masterplanning in planning and designing future proofed places?
  • How do we practically deliver on this?
  • How do we work together to better protect, adapt, evaluate and maintain what we deliver?

We are grateful to Scottish Natural Heritage’s Green Infrastructure Fund, the IUCN Urban Alliance, the members of our advisory group, and all consultees for their help thus far in bringing this event together.
