Have you thought about where our industry might be in 10 years? How about in 30 years? What kind of future do you imagine for us? Have we reached and surpassed our Carbon Targets? These are just a few of the questions we will be getting into during our upcoming Time Capsule Event & Panel Discussion.

This June, CIBSE South West and CIBSE YEN South West are collaborating to bring you our highly anticipated event; Letters to the Designers of Tomorrow.

Our focus here is on bringing together professionals from across the built environment sector, to dissect and discuss the progress that has been made in recent years and more importantly the progress and innovation yet to come!

The knowledge and questions uncovered during the panel discussion will aid in your submission for the time capsule itself. In this part of the evening we ask our attendees to jot down a few relevant thoughts, hopes and questions sparked during out panel in a short letter to future designers. These letters will be sealed in the time capsule for the decade to come, until the time arises where we have reached our carbon goals.

Time for networking will be available both before and after the panel discussion itself. Nibbles and Beverages will be provided, serving teas, coffees and wines.

This event is for everyone within the built environment sector, so please come along, and bring your unique perspectives with you!
