Placemaking in UK high streets

Tuesday 13 June, 12 to 1pm | Webinar
Three years after the first wave of Covid-19 hit the UK, retailers and the hospitality sector are still feeling the impacts of a global crisis that fundamentally changed the way we live, work and play. But despite (and as a consequence of) growing pressures from the cost of living crisis, this new way of living offers plenty of opportunities for planners and businesses alike to rethink the role of the High Street in building community resilience. This webinar will look at placemaking and strengthening communities through rejuvenation of town and village centres across the UK.

Driving resilience through policies, regulations and standards

Tuesday 27 June 2023, 8am to 9:30am BST, London
The Engineering Leadership Group (ELG) is delighted to announce that it is part of London Climate Action Week 2023. Without intervention to improve resilience to physical climate risks such as drought, heatwaves, floods and storms, we will not be able to achieve a fair and just transition to a resilient, low carbon world. Action to improve resilience is not happening fast enough, leading to a decline in the social and economic benefits that infrastructure provides and a rise in the costs associated with damage and deteriorating performance.
