Summer School on Circularity in the Built Environment
New dates announced: July 10-12, 2022
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 Summer 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, July 10 to Tuesday, July 12.
Participants are also invited to attend the CiBEn Conference that will take place in Delft on the following days Wednesday, July 13 to Friday, July 15. Summer School activities and outcomes will be presented at the CiBEn conference during a special (CBE Hub) session.
The rising numbers of corona cases have made us reconsider our plans to host the Winter School live in November. Safety remains our top priority. Moreover, the Faculty of Civil Engineering, which is partnering our Winter School, has announced that the CiBEn conference has been postponed for July 13-15, 2022.
After consulting with registered participants, we realized that the majority prefers to meet live here in Delft instead of attending the Winter School online as we originally intended. But postponed is not abandoned: we have decided to reschedule the Winter School for July 10-12. We hope you can join us then!
