- Type HQN Event
- Venue London

The devastating, horrific effects of global warming are now glaringly obvious. Climate change is with us and we’re going to have to learn how to deal with the implications very, very quickly.
With over four million homes, the social housing sector’s responsibility AND opportunity to reduce emissions is enormous.
How do we build the energy efficient properties of the future and improve the millions that already exist? What about the ecology that surrounds our homes? How do we engage with residents and act to improve their health and wellbeing? How do we protect stock from wildly fluctuating weather systems?
We know you’re anxious to take action. We know that direction (and concern) from government isn’t necessarily clear or consistent. Across the board, initiative is going to be key.
Following the creation of the HQN climate change group, we can now announce our first conference focused on what has become the biggest problem of our age.
Featuring experts from a range of a fields, the event will aim to inspire and inform you on what can be done right now to reduce carbon production.
Chaired by Sheffield Hallam University’s John Grant, you’ll hear from and engage with those in the sector who are already taking huge strides to tackle their organisation’s emissions.
With global warming presenting such a huge danger, this is probably the most important and pressing event HQN has ever held – and, if you’re committed to addressing climate change in your organisation, absolutely essential to attend.
