UK Sustainability Conference comes to Sheffield
22 October 2014
FutureBuild 2014, a brand new UK conference, will be held at Sheffield City Hall, UK, on 5th-6th November 2014 and focuses on the sustainability of housing, renewable energy and community energy schemes.
FutureBuild 2014 is being launched as part of the REGREEN project, a European sustainability project funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The REGREEN project aims to improve regional sustainable policies across Europe with a special focus on greening the building sector.
From top politicians to sustainable energy industry specialists and business entrepreneurs, a range of sessions and networking opportunities to do with sustainable housing, renewable energy and community energy schemes show that FutureBuild 2014 has something for everyone. A policy debate involving key politicians, European representatives, industry specialists and journalists will also be held.
With the prior spokesperson on Environment and Climate Change for Labour and the Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) group in the European Parliament Linda McAvan MEP as well as a leading low carbon economy commentator and leading sustainability executive on the panel, the policy debate at FutureBuild 2014 is set to draw the crowds. Questions can be submitted to the panel in advance and members of the public and the industry will be able to hear perspectives from the UK, Europe and the industry on how sustainability policy should be developed.
The conference will culminate in a Gala Dinner to be held in the prestigious Cutlers Hall in Sheffield on Thursday 6th November at which Lord Digby Jones, the trouble-shooter himself, will give a keynote speech. The dinner will be a Black Tie event, starting with a networking event and drinks reception at 7.30pm, followed by an impressive three course dinner in the iconic Cutlers Hall.
