Woodlife Sweden at Archtober | Global Cooperations. Digital round table discussion co-hosted by Arvet and UN-Habitat

The building industry is currently responsible for more than 35% of total greenhouse gas emissions and carbon intensive and fossile materials such as concrete and steel are no longer a relevant option for building our future cities.

To raise the awareness of renewable building materials within the UN ARVET donated the “Community hall” to a refugee camp in Kalobeyei in Kenya, designed by known Swedish Architects at Petra Gipp Studio. Refugee camps more and more often becomes bigger and permanent. The round table will talk about how we can make them more sustainable, incorporate public spaces and learnings from a city planning perspective.
