Raising aspirations - leading by example

02 March / 15.00-16.00

We must nurture a talent for excellence throughout our industry to act on the wicked problems we have to resolve. The Climate Change Committee’s 3rd Risk Assessment (CCRA 3 – 2021) made it very clear that there is no time to delay. What is the new vision and mission for our industry leaders and their organisations? How can we move towards requiring benefits, not profit for profit’s sake, as an outcome? How can we engage more widely and move from following orders to being more influential – starting with clients, briefs, design outcomes and confirming that we will deliver net zero in all our projects as part of our contract with clients? 

Our speakers will each give us five minutes on raising aspirations to introduce a wider discussion.
