5pm: INSPIRATION | Speaker Martin Brown

Sustainability Provocateur.

Martin explores our sustainable futures, sharing powerful messages and inspiring stories about the tough choices we face and the opportunities we have to create a better tomorrow.

Can you face up to a sustainable future?

Do we really have the luxury of only being less bad, of only reducing impact. Over the last thirty years we have used the mantra of doing nothing today to compromise tomorrows generation, and yet we continue to do more bad and to compromise. This has to stop.

From understanding climate change, reconnecting with nature, rethinking carbon management and the materials we use in our buildings Martin acknowledges we can all imagine better and provokes improvement. Move away from that doing nothing today mindset. of only being less bad, to a sustainable built environment that regenerates, does more good, and makes more than it takes.

Why should we listen?

The built environment is facing an avalanche of disruptive change; methods of design and construction; digital technical and financial; social and climate imperatives; shifts in investment and a new understanding of how we value buildings.

Some of these disruptions are from within our sector, far more are external. Martin alerts to the next and emerging initiative and imperative that organisations in the built environment must address now for a sustainable future.

Across the UK and around the world we have thousands of inspiring examples where buildings and built environment organisations have shifted from being part of the climate change problem to being a real part of climate change solutions. And are benefiting economically and socially from doing so. Are you shifting?

Welcome to the new normal!
