Meeting ID: 898 8117 3329
Passcode: 587941

Anna Hollyman
Anna is an architect and sustainability advisor currently working for the UK Green Building Council UKGBC, an industry led charity whose mission is to radically transform the sustainability of the built environment. Anna is a trustee of REG, lives in Camber with her partner and nine year old son, and is passionate about improving our connection with the natural environment.

COP26 and the future of the built environment
COP26 was billed as our ‘last chance’ of avoiding catastrophic climate change, and reports vary as to how successful it was in its goal of ‘keeping 1.5’C alive’. We will discuss what was achieved and next steps in the context of the built environment – it would be great to hear your views. Anna will also touch on UKGBC’s Net Zero Whole life Carbon Roadmap that details what is required to decarbonise the UK’s built environment, and the ‘Build Better Now‘ virtual pavilion that gives an inspirational vision of what the future could look like.

The talk will be preceded by a brief AGM at 7:30pm. Anna’s talk will start at about 7:45pm and there will be plenty of time for Q&A afterwards. The Zoom link will be open from 7:15pm.

At the AGM officers and committee members will be elected. We would welcome interest from any member who wishes to put themselves forward to help. If you would like to find out more email our chair, Dominic Manning, at
