MPGCA Cities, Regions and Built Environment Action Day – Leading collaborative action in the Built Environment
Venue: Global Climate Action Room 1
Date: 11 November
Time: 12:05 – 13:00 GMT
Description: Cities, regions and their built environment are at the forefront of the climate emergency. With their actions towards halving emissions by 2030, they are catalysts of the just transition and a green and just recovery from COVID-19. This event will explore how human settlements can inspire radical behavioral and consumption changes for people to lead lives compatible with a 1.5oC lifestyle, especially looking through the lenses of the key pillars of the “Human Settlements pathway: the built environment and waste and consumption”. Critically, the event will demonstrate the key enablers and market drivers of the entire buildings and construction value chain to influence innovative action, as well as circular economy approaches towards a net-zero resilient transition.
