Building Better: The Bartlett Podcast


Building Better Before the Clock Runs Out

Season 3, Ep. 3

This November, the 27th session of the Conference of the Parties of UNFCCC, or COP27, was hosted in Egypt.

Throughout the conference, heads of state, ministers, climate activists and academics met to discuss and reach agreements on how to mitigate and prevent the impact of climate change.

In this episode of Building Better, we spoke to two Bartlett faculty members about their experience of attending the conference and what it means for the built environment sector around the world:

  • Lilia Caiado Coelho Beltrao Couto, PhD Candidate at the Institute for Sustainable Resources and Chapter Scientist and Research assistant for the IPCC AR6 Mitigation report 
  • Dr Efrosyni Konstantinou, Senior Lecturer at the Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction   

Through their research and expertise, we'll explore the current global attitude towards climate change, and solutions to build better before the clock runs out.
