Practical Climate Solutions

15 Broadway
Ultimo NSW 2007
UTS Great Hall, Level 5

Friday 17 May from 3:30pm to 5pm

Six problems. Six solutions.

What does resilience look like for natural disaster-prone communities? How can they rebuild and adapt to a changing environment to future-proof from further destruction? What sustainable materials should we be investing in to support circular economies?-

With a growing population, the need for housing, and ambitious zero-carbon emission targets, how do we satisfy two opposing needs and demands? What role does community outreach and engagement play in the larger picture of climate action and proactive grassroots solutions?

Hear from leading UTS experts and industry practitioners who are tackling these ever-pressing problems with creative, practical solutions. These experts will discuss solutions related to rethinking disaster recovery, new materials to drive a circular economy, climate-adapted businesses, as well as ways our cultural institutions are addressing the climate crisis.
