Panelists discussed the challenges the built environment must tackle and how to create potential for our future generations cities and people.
The United Nations has declared that cities are where the climate battle will largely be won or lost, and although they are places of great innovation, real estate has a long way to go in creating environmentally better and more resilient spaces for business, society, and the natural world.
Melanie opened up the floor to the panel to discuss how the real estate sector can tackle these issues of regeneration and urbanisation. How the importance of quality architecture and planning will have sizeable impacts on the future living for everyone and how important education is for future generations coming into the real estate world.
