Some of the world’s leading figures in the fields of architecture, construction and environmentally sustainable development convened at the University of Huddersfield for a four-day board and strategy meeting that concluded with a symposium on how vulnerable communities could develop resilience to climate change and flooding (hosted by GDRC).
The event was the latest six-monthly board meeting of the global organisation CIB, established in 1953 to aid recovery from the ravages of WWII and now an international network of 5,000 experts involved in the building industry or academic research.
