Before we kick off this episode a couple of announcements: First up I am happy to announce that the BILT goes globally virtual from June 22nd until 24th, 2021! The event will be held over multiple days and global time zones. You can find more info about the virtual event and register your interest in participation HERE. We also would like to let you know that the BILT Academy Podcast is going on a summer break for 2 full months in August and September this year. We will take the time to refill our energy levels and to spark some new podcast creativity.
Our Twelfth episode has been curated by our BILT Academy correspondent Julia. This is the first of a two-part podcast series on sustainability. This month's part one has Julia interviewing a leader in sustainability and climate adaptation.
Those outside of the EU might not be aware, that the European Green Deal is the ambitious EU climate policy that aims to be the first climate neutral continent by the year 2050!
This requires a fundamental transformation of our energy system and for the general building industry. For this Episode, I teamed up with Willy Spanjer who will tell us how the Technical University of Delft, in the Netherlands aims to contribute towards these ambitious European goals.
Willy Spanjer is the Project Manager for Sustainable Building & Climate Adaptation at The Green Village. The Green Village is a field lab for sustainable innovation in the urban environment.
