  • Useful to see the different challenges and how they are being approached.
  • Informative and a great opportunity to learn from others delivering and researching in later living. 
  • Very interesting presentations on probably the most important issue facing us all.


In this webinar, we'll explore two noteworthy net-zero initiatives. The first, presented by Housing 21, delves into its comprehensive strategy for achieving low-carbon sustainability. The second, delivered by Inspired Villages, focuses on the UK's first net-zero carbon retirement community, Millfield Green, situated in Caddington, central Bedfordshire.

Additionally, we'll delve into the cutting-edge research being conducted at Heriot-Watt University, which explores the intersection of inclusive age-friendly environments and climate change.
