Winter School on Circularity in the Built Environment
21 - 23 November 2021
Transitioning to a Circular Built Environment is a challenging task. In the Netherlands, the government’s plan is to reduce the use of primary resources by 50% as soon as 2030 and to turn fully circular by 2050. Building industry, policy makers, planners and practitioners are now directing their efforts towards minimizing consumption while maximizing chances of reuse. The shift to a Circular Built Environment, however, requires a new mindset as well as a cooperative approach at all scales with all interested and affected parties. Innovations and the knowledge created should therefore be openly and widely shared and constantly evaluated.
The Circular Built Environment Hub (CBE Hub) of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at TU Delft is excited to host the Winter School on Circularity in the Built Environment. Students from all levels of education (BSc, MSc) as well as PhD researchers are invited to participate in a 3-day intensive workshop from Sunday, November 21 to Tuesday, November 23.
Participants are also invited to attend the CiBEn Conference that will take place in Delft on the following days Wednesday, November 24 to Friday, November 26. Winter School activities and outcomes will be presented at the CiBEn conference during a special (CBE Hub) session to be held on Friday.
It is our intention to host the Winter School on-site. We are closely monitoring the latest developments concerning the coronavirus. If it is not possible to carry out an on-site programme due to COVID-19, the Winter School will be hosted online. Health and safety are our first priority.
