How to take action now

How NOT to overheat buildings webinar

Welcome to the second appointment in this exciting series of online learning sessions by Green Building Encyclopaedia!

In this webinar, we will focus on climate resilience for buildings. We are in fact facing a warming climate, while the industry has been focusing on winter conditions for decades. How do we fill this gap in regulations and knowledge? How do we future-proof buildings for a more comfortable and cool internal environment on hot days?

Whether you are a sustainability expert or simply interested in the subject, this webinar will enable you to solidify your basic knowledge on bioclimatic principles and will give you a direction for further research and learning in the subject.

We will discuss:

  • Trends and projections of the warming climate and what it means for buildings
  • Barriers and knowledge gaps in the industry
  • How the building fabric needs to adapt to change in temperatures
  • Cooling strategies (natural and mechanical) in buildings
  • What actions we can take on existing buildings now
  • Overcoming design and regulations gaps
  • Online tools, software and other resources available.

We encourage audience participation throughout and will end the session with a Q&A with your expert presenters.
