Hear from an expert panel and ask about integrating natural solutions into homes and workplaces and the future of living design

About this event

How can our architecture, refurbishment projects, gardens, homes and workspaces support the natural world as well as our own wellbeing? What could the future of building design look like, and how can we be inspired by nature in our daily lives?

Join us for an exploration of the intersection of conservation and natural design. ‘Biophilic design’ integrates nature and natural elements, materials and forms into architecture and interiors. It aims to connect building users to the natural world and has been linked to increased wellbeing and productivity.

The panel of experts will discuss examples from Cambridge and further afield, and consider what it’s possible for us to do ourselves as well as the bigger picture of natural solutions for climate resilience and the future of living design and communities.

Q&A

Let us know in the Eventbrite registration form if you have a particular question for the panel. There will also be the chance to ask questions at the event.
