Passivhaus Trust has announced that this year’s UK Passivhaus Conference will be entirely virtual and focus on the theme, “A Healthy & Green Future.” At the core of their programming will be an examination of how the Passive House standard addresses some of the often overlooked issues that will likely arise as the effects of climate change become more salient. More than just being an environmental or energy issue, climate change will also have a major impact on public health and economic activities throughout the world. Humanitarian crises are also expected to become more common as significant populations are displaced due to the consequences of desertification, rising ocean levels, and more aggressive wildfires.
The conference hopes to show that energy-efficient buildings that rely on Passivhaus principles can simultaneously assist with reducing carbon emissions; provide a catalyst to boost jobs and training to build back a greener economy; and provide healthy, comfortable indoor environments. For these looming problems, Passivhaus offers a robust ‘oven-ready’ solution.
The program will run every Wednesday in November (the 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th) from 3:00 pm to 6:10 pm UTC.
