About the event:
The construction industry is responsible for 37 per cent of global CO2 emissions, while at the same time an estimated 80 per cent of all environmental impacts of products are caused by design decisions.
Design and architecture are crucial for sustainable transformation and have countless intersections. Our joint impact is huge and offers a lot of potential for a pioneering role in all areas. At the same time, both areas know far too little about and about each other when it comes to environmental issues, data and solutions.
We want to change that!
Together with renowned experts from design and architecture, we want to expand the transparent, living collection of the Knowledge Foundation, which collects and documents knowledge modules at the interface of design and architecture + construction. The knowledge database will then be available free of charge on the Wissensstiftung website.
