Building an environmentally sustainable cultural estate with Julie’s Bicycle

We’re excited to be working in partnership with Julie’s Bicycle to host a one day event funded by Arts Council England, which will explore the opportunities and challenges of climate change adaptation and mitigation for cultural and heritage buildings.

Last year Fit for the Future Network partnered with the Sustainable Traditional Buildings Alliance (STBA) to produce the Responsible Retrofit for Traditional Buildings Conference which successfully brought together a range of different organisations under one roof for a day of sharing best practice, networking and lively discussions.

This year we’ve teamed up with Julie’s Bicycle to run a one day event at the Lyric, Hammersmith – Fit for the Future: Building a resilient, environmentally sustainable cultural estate. The event will build on the experience of Fit for the Future Network and its members as well as the guide Fit for the Future: Investing in Sustainable Buildings, produced by Julie’s Bicycle, which provides a wealth of useful information and case studies covering a range of capital projects from the likes of the National Theatre, Everyman Liverpool and also Tate Modern and The Whitworth, both of whom are members of the Fit for the Future Network.

The day will offer inspiring talks and workshops from leading practitioners on embedding environmental sustainability into capital projects from conception to completion, covering a range of topics from renewable energy, energy efficiency, heritage conservation, innovative design approaches and team engagement, plus access to great expertise as well as routes to finance. There will be plenty of opportunities for knowledge sharing and networking throughout the event and also a chance to take a tour of the Lyric.

This event is already SOLD OUT but you can sign up to the waiting list and watch the livestream on the day – save the date, 21st September in your calendar!
