Webinar “Rethinking Sustainability” and presentation of the book “Rethinking Sustainability Towards a Regenerative Economy” (Andreucci, M.B., Marvuglia, A., Baltov, M. & Hansen, P.; Springer International, 2021)
30.06.2021, h. 17:00-19:00
Organised by the Department of Planning, Design, and Technology of Architecture, Sapienza University of Rome in collaboration with Living Future Europe.
This open access book is based on work from the COST Action “RESTORE – REthinking Sustainability TOwards a Regenerative Economy”, and highlights how sustainability in buildings, facilities and urban governance is crucial for a future that is socially just, ecologically restorative, and economically viable, for Europe and the whole planet.
In light of the search for fair solutions to the climate crisis, the panelists of the webinar “Rethinking Sustainability” (Laura Ricci, Fabrizio Tucci, Maria Beatrice Andreucci, Carlo Battisti, Martin Brown, Antonino Marvuglia, Milen Baltov, Jukka Taneli Heinonen, Clarice Bleil De Souza, Cristina Jimenez Pulido, Daniel Christian Wahl) will outline the urgency for the built environment sector to implement adaptation and mitigation strategies, as well as a just transition. This can be done by applying a broader framework that enriches places, architecture, people, ecology, culture, and climate, at the core of the design task – with a particular emphasis on the benefits towards health and resilient construction and business practices.
The book “Rethinking Sustainability Towards a Regenerative Economy” (Andreucci, MB, Marvuglia, A, Baltov, M & Hansen, P; Springer International, 2021) is one step on the way to a paradigm shift towards restorative sustainability for new and existing buildings, districts and cities. The authors want to promote forward thinking and multidisciplinary knowledge, leading to solutions that celebrate the richness of design creativity. In this vision, cities and districts of the future will enhance users’ experience, health and well-being inside and outside of buildings, while reconciling anthropic ecosystems and nature.
This open access book is based on work from the COST Action “RESTORE”, and highlights how sustainability in buildings, facilities and urban governance is crucial for a future that is socially just, ecologically restorative, and economically viable, for Europe and the whole planet. A valuable resource for scientists and students in environmental sciences and architecture, as well as policy makers, practitioners and investors in urban and regional development.
The event will be enriched by a keynote by Daniel Christian Wahl on “Designing Regenerative Cultures“.
