Highlights from Fleetwood’s latest Learning Session webinar
It seems everywhere you turn in 2020, governments, businesses and communities are heralding the importance of ‘sustainability’. But what does sustainability actually mean, in a practical sense, for those of us who are employed to create, shape and define the built environment for current and future generations?
In our latest thought-provoking Learning Session, attended by industry professionals via Zoom on Thursday 29th October, we heard from two globally-respected authorities on the topic of sustainability in the built environment: Professor Sara Wilkinson from the University of Technology in Sydney and Rory Martin from Frasers Property Australia.
Calling upon their vast experiences, both domestically and abroad, Sara and Rory shared fascinating examples of sustainability best practice. They also offered valuable insights into some of the key obstacles – and opportunities – facing today’s industry professionals. Below is a short summary of the key discussion points from the session.
