At the start of the year we mentioned that we wanted to host some Google+ Hangouts to debate issues that are not so clear cut.
We are pleased to announce that our first forum will be on Monday 18th February 2013 at 8.30pm.
A panel of experts and home owners will get in front of their webcams for the debate and the programme will be transmitted live on YouTube. A pre-recorded version will also be available to review after the event.
Our subject for this first session is:
The Balance Between Heritage and Sustainable Design
What's more important – preserving heritage architecture or retrofitting it to high energy efficiency? There has to be a balance between the past and the future, particularly if we accept that we have to reduce our fossil fuel dependency. Where is that line?
Our panel consists:
Homeowner Ross Atkin (who has recently retrofitted his Victorian house)
Ben Adam-Smith will be leading the discussion and it is scheduled to be 30 minutes long.
