Smart Homes: More Than Just a House, with Kevin McCloud

13th June, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm


A unique opportunity to meet Kevin McCloud and a panel of sustainable building experts at this event designed for anyone interested in community development, self-build or renewable energy.  Only 100 tickets available, so book early.

*Please note, this event is listed as ‘Smart Homes with Kevin McCloud and the Bristol Community Land Trust’ in the printed programme*

Housing is Bristol’s number 1 priority, and top of the list for the new city Mayor. In addition to reaching a target of 2000 per year, 800 of which are “affordable”, we need to make sure that we build communities rather than just housing. With land at a premium, fuel prices on the increase, and green space under threat, how can Bristol meet its housing needs whilst tackling inequality, climate change and resilience at the same time?
