POSTPONED Decarbonising Our Cities: Barriers And Solutions

Tue 16 Nov 2021, 4pm - 5pm

We are sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances with several of our key speakers, we regret that we have to postponed today’s planned event. We are hoping to reschedule this event very soon and will re-contact you when we have an agreed date. Our apologies again.

One of the solutions to creating a low carbon built environment is through the greater use of timber in construction. However, there are a number of barriers to achieving this, not least public perception.

Here we hear from world leading examples in Sweden which have achieved not just single timber buildings but timber development at a whole town scale. We will find out from them how they have achieved this and what they had to overcome.

This will be followed by an update on projects in the UK which are seeking to provide the market with solutions to overcoming the same barriers here at home. 


This is a hybrid event where attendees can join in-person or online.

Register to attend here.


This event is part of the World of Wood Festival - a six-week celebration of global timber and global forests takes place from 25 October to 3 December 2021 at the Building Centre, and virtually around the world. 


The World of Wood was devised and coordinated by the UK Timber Trade Federation and CEI-Bois, representing European woodworking industries; the team has created an alliance of over 40 separate associations, organisations, businesses and campaigns representing global forest growth and development, engineered mass timber and wood-based products from Indonesia to Ghana, Australia, North America and China. 

This initiative is also supported by UK Aid, under the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office’s FGMC programme (Forest Governance, Markets and Climate).
