The Nature Stage

The built environment is a net consumer of materials and a major contributor to climate change. Future generations are concerned about how current decision-makers are seeking to address this, and many children are already considering what their role might be in the future to make a positive contribution.

In this opening session, we will explore the relationship between nature, communities and the built environment.

  • How can building with regenerative and renewable materials support both nature and society?
  • How can nature inspire children to seek a change-making career in the built environment?
  • What are the potential economic benefits?
