Taking place at the Barbican, the festival includes a packed agenda of speakers from the world of sustainability and topics set to spark conversations at the post-event unwind. The evening is intended for those involved in commercial interior specification that are interested in circular design and progressive thinking about lifestyle.
The World Land Trust, greenspec and WRAP will begin the evening with a panel discussion on the positive actions you can now take to make more sustainable choices in specifications. Next, minds from Tudor Stonework, The Office Group, Woodalls Design and Make Architects will share their ambitions and contemplate what the future of sustainable design might look like.
The session will wrap up with eco champions in Planq, King Celia Studio and Criaterra getting to grips with how to overcome the challenges of sustainability through innovation and alternatives, including office furniture and 100% natural and biodegradable wall tiles.

‘40 for 40’ is a landmark programme for Parkside and Strata Tiles. For every square metre of tiles with over 40 per cent recycled content purchased from Parkside or Strata Tiles, the companies will donate 40 pence to World Land Trust, through the conservation charity’s Buy an Acre programme that preserves crucial natural habitats.
