    • The Netherlands Pavillon @Expo2020

    The Benelux Business Council in collaboration with the Netherlands Business Council invite you to a session about the most recent developments in Urban Design and of the built environment that address the issues which sustainability requirements and climate change pose. In particular for the high temperature areas of the world such as the Middle East, sustainable solutions are required to deal with the surging demand for cooling / air conditioning. Simply adding new cooling capacity is not an option even when not fuelled by fossil energy. Also the Corona lockdowns and working from home have changed the way we look at our work environment and urban lives.

    Join us for this event with Winka Dubbeldam, founding partner Archi-tectonics NYC LLC, renowned Dutch-American architect and academic and Marcos Bish, Managing Director of Summertown, our corporate member with focus on delivering high quality sustainable workplace solutions.

    With presentations of the experts on our panel, they will share their experiences, views and expectations on these issues and will take your questions in a Q&A session. Moderated by Anthony Martin Dols
