Healthy Cities at the sustainable Crystal Building
On 9th October we will be holding our Healthy Cities forum at The Crystal Building which is one of the world's most sustainable buildings, achieving Outstanding BREEAM and Platinum LEED accreditation - the most stringent standards for sustainable design and construction.
The Crystal, which sits on the waterside at London's Royal Victoria Docks near Canary Wharf and the Emirates Airline Cable Car, is an all-electric building that uses solar power and a ground source heat pump to generate its own energy. The building incorporates raniwater harvesting, black water treatment, solar heating and automated building management systems.
A large exhibition area inside provides information on our future health needs in cities, the chronic diseases that our population will continue to face and how we should research innovative energy and water supplies.
Our debates will look at these topics but also at the rise of infectious diseases, cyber security at our ports, healthy streets with integrated transport, healthy new towns, innovations in hospital design and the regeneration of city housing.
Join us for networking over coffee and lunch, exchange views and information and make new contacts.
