Yorkshire Sustainability Festival – Day Two: Future Cities

From our infrastructure in energy, construction and transport to water and waste.

Wed 19 Jun | £275

09:00 - 17:00


Cloth Hall Court, Quebec St, Leeds LS1 2HA

Future Cities

Retrofitting and creating new sustainable infrastructure in our towns and cities is a crucial part of the journey to building (literally!) a sustainable future. To build the cities of the future requires a holistic and integrated approach to urban planning and development that considers the interconnectedness of environmental, social, and economic factors.

We’re pleased to be bringing back and expanding our Future Cities conference day for year 2, as we dig deeper into the conversation around the circular economy in construction, how we move from place to place, creating truly regenerative designs, adopting new forms of energy, using ‘waste’ materials, and of course, really importantly, who’s going to do these new jobs of the future, and how we’re going to train and upskill them!

Day two focuses on the themes of circular economy, covering:

  • Transport
  • Construction
  • Energy
  • Skills
  • Water
  • People and Place
  • Housing

Who attends

Whether you’re a seasoned sustainability expert or just starting out, this festival is for anyone who wants to hear from experts in the field and learn more about initiatives that are already happening across Yorkshire and the UK.

The Yorkshire Sustainability Festival is a place where industry thought leaders come together to network with like-minded individuals all committed to making a difference. We welcome everyone from the start-up community through to established businesses who want their voices heard on issues that matter.
