By 2050, 68% of the world’s population will live in cities.
And Tuesday 1st January 2030 is the deadline for the built environment to contribute to the fulfillment of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
A deadline that takes place in the next decade may seem like someone else’s problem.
But if we don’t act now, then who will and when?
Now is the time to plan the cities and communities we want and need, both now and in the future. It is up to everyone in the construction value chain and beyond to play their part in planning and securing a sustainable built environment for the future: architects & engineers, constructors, materials suppliers, building owners & municipalities, regulators, financial institutions and IT players.
No group is too big or too small to be neither irrelevant nor unaffected.
Bringing the best minds together, BEYOND 2020 is our opportunity to create the missing link between the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 and the built environment.
We will cross the boundaries of knowledge, share top-level expertise and merge it to help shape the future of the built environment, together.
How will you make a difference in the built environment?
