Event Description

Our cultural buildings are more than inanimate walls: they shape the performances they house and the experiences of their visitors, physically transmit values, and become symbols of their time and community.

Join us at Fit for the Future to explore the environmental sustainability of your buildings - the day will focus on capital projects and the opportunities and challenges of climate change adaptation and mitigation for buildings, including renewable energy, energy efficiency, heritage conservation, innovative design approaches and team engagement.

Taking place at the recently redeveloped Lyric Hammersmith, the day includes a tour of the building and is being held in association with Fit for the Future Network.

The day will offer:

  • inspiring panels featuring leading sustainability practitioners
  • networking and peer-to-peer learning
  • in-depth and diverse case studies with those who have worked on capital (re)development projects
  • break out sessions on energy efficiency, large-scale refurbishment and new venue design, and financing models and opportunities for greener buildings

This event is for strategic decision makers, CEOs, executives, facilities managers, heads of operations, and anyone responsible for the upkeep, operation, design, and/or refurbishment of cultural and heritage buildings; as well as funders of capital works.
