Sustainable Building 2020 – October 2020

The current situation with the Covid-19 pandemic and its social, economic and environmental impacts has brought to the fore the importance of design and placemaking in creating infrastructure, places and buildings that will allow us to be prepared for, and make us less vulnerable to, future pandemics or crises. As the built environment sector innovates to overcome these challenges, there will be a remarkable number of opportunities when creating new buildings or retrofitting those that we already have, creating new places and rebuilding the economy. This has been reflected in the new Programme for Government, with a £100m Green Jobs Fund, the investment of £275m for the regeneration of communities and town centres and £500m to be invested in Active Travel infrastructure over 5 years (£100m to be spent in 2020/21) and the Infrastructure Investment Plan which amounts to £24bn over 5 years and includes investment to decarbonise business, industry and buildings, the provision of new health facilities, schools and homes. With this level of investment currently available, it is the perfect time for leaders and innovators in these fields to share their experiences, knowledge and best-practice with each other and with organisations that are perhaps less experienced in some of these fields. This event is an ideal opportunity for architects, planners, placemaking professionals, local and national government officers, elected representatives at local and national level, infrastructure providers, engineers and all other relevant stakeholders to engage with other thought leaders and potential partners to forge solutions to the challenges and explore what opportunities may be presented by the current situation. Event Agenda: 10:00 Introduction from the Chair – Christina Gaiger, President, RIAS Understanding the implications of covid-19 and lockdown measures for the future of the built environment – Prof. Ashraf Salama, Department of Architecture, University of Strathclyde A planning and…

INDUCE – MeerWissen – Defining socially-inclusive strategies for conserving fish functional diversity and promoting sustainable blue economy in Senegal

Country/Region Senegal/West Africa Project duration August 2020 to September 2022 Senegal is a coastal and Sahelian country with a wide range of rural areas, hosting unique and diverse species. The coastlines and deltas are characterized by highly productive marine ecosystems and are hotspots for large populations of fish. Fishes are critical to maintain ecosystem functions and services, including food provision and creation of jobs for the fishing industry. However, Senegal coastal ecosystems face numerous environmental issues linked to human activities. Solid scientific knowledge on how environmental stress affects biodiversity in the region is in urgent need to guide mitigation strategies aimed at conserving biodiversity and promoting sustainable economic growth. Biodiversity has traditionally been quantified as the number of species in each ecosystem, thus failing to account for the ecological role that species play within ecosystems. Functional diversity, measured by how species interact with the environment and with other species, has emerged as a more effective link between biodiversity and ecosystem functions and services. Despite functional diversity is key to ecosystem services valuable to humans, this metric is rarely considered in the discourse connecting science to governance and policy. The overall goal of this project is to produce sound scientific knowledge for the conservation of fish functional diversity from socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable economic growth perspectives in Senegal. Collected data will constitute the basis for the development of capacities and management strategies in support of the National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plan (NBSAP) and according to the Plan Senegal Emergent (PSE) and Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) principles. Produce sound scientific knowledge for the conservation of fish functional diversity from socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable economic growth perspectives in Senegal Assess the status of fish functional diversity and determine the links with ecosystem functions and services Build capacities for functional…

Woodstone Introduces Hand-crafted, Sustainable Wooden Watches and Accessories – Richmond News Now

This brand’s stylish yet high-quality wooden watches and accessories are made from natural materials. The company also plants trees to promote product sustainability. In a time when people are consumed by their smartphones, smartwatches, and social media accounts, keeping in touch with nature to meditate, relax, and recharge seems impossible. People spend a lot of their time online, and this may result in weakened relationships, inability to focus on tasks and mental health issues. Seeing this scenario, two outdoor and watch enthusiasts aimed to create a product that will remind people to spend their time well and keep in touch with nature to achieve self-mastery. This led to the creation of Woodstone. Woodstone is a brand offering stylish, hand-crafted wooden watches and accessories that are also sustainable. “We plant a tree for every watch we sell. So far, we planted over 40,000 fruit trees in needy countries that provide sustainable food and income through our tree planting partner,” said a representative at Woodstone. Woodstone watches and accessories are made with good design. They have clean, minimalist, uncluttered, and eco-friendly looks to show people that good designs can be on point while making a difference in the world. They’re high-quality and affordable too.

Decentralized Waste to Energy plants towards a circular economy

The rapid increase in the generation of municipal solid waste is exerting considerable pressure on the conventional centralised MSW management system, and is resulting in a move towards a more decentralised system with smaller capacity waste treatment facilities. Smaller EfW integrated at different levels of the urban environment minimise the transportation of waste and ensure the local benefit is maximised from community waste. In this webinar, we will learn how you can start to make this move and the benefits. The UK must no longer simply bury or export the waste problem. Instead, as other European economies do, it should treat residual waste as a valuable resource to produce lower carbon heat and energy, alongside a focus on achieving important recycling targets and investing in innovative recycling technology. In this webinar, in partnership with Turboden, we will discuss: Supporting the move to a low carbon and circular economy – The role of decentralised WTE plants The UK RDF market and the need to increase internal EfW capacity WTE solutions based on ORC technology Case studies and lessons learnt so far
