Akademiska Hus goes Beyond 2020

One of the largest conferences on the sustainable built environment worldwide, BEYOND 2020 – World Sustainable Built Environment Online Conference, will be held 2–4 November. As part of Akademiska Hus’ vision for a zero carbon footprint and its aim to take the lead for a sustainable construction and property industry, we are one of the main sponsors of the conference.

The main purpose of the conference is to link the UN sustainable development goals to the built environment industry in order to identify roles and practical solutions, thereby helping to achieve goal 11, sustainable cities and communities, by 2030. Representatives from research, business and organisations from all over the world will gather for the completely digital conference. Chalmers is the local host, with support from Johanneberg Science Park and the City of Gothenburg.

Active role during the conference

The conference provides a major opportunity to engage in dialogue on cross-border measures needed to achieve a climate-neutral construction and property industry. Akademiska Hus will therefore participate with great dedication to highlight insights and experiences regarding how good knowledge and learning environments can contribute to sustainability and well-being, while enhancing the attractiveness of higher education and research in a way that is inclusive and open to everyone.
