We are running a series of activities in the Autumn of 2018 to explore what the risks are to the UK built environment from a changing climate and what can be done to make buildings and infrastructure more resilient. More information on the project can be found here.

This roundtable is for practitioners and academics within our membership who are working on the issue of climate resilience in the built environment.
