Built Positive - The Toolbox: Well-being and Circularity from the Molecule to the Metropolis

in London, GB
Central London

Join the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute’s Built Positive team for a half-day workshop focused on the knowledge and tools necessary for realizing healthy, circular building projects. Created for architects, owners, developers, and other sustainability professionals, this workshop will help you operationalize Material Heath as a foundational precursor to the circular economy in the built environment. You’ll explore the world of materials and regenerative design from molecule to the metropolis as we consider approaches to creating projects with disassembly, reuse and recovery and a positive impact in mind.

Led by international industry leaders, a variety of presentations and interactive discussions will provide a clear framework to accelerate the achievement of sustainability, well-being and circularity goals. You will also discover a portfolio of tools and resources that can help you translate new concepts into active practice right away.
