This seminar will provide you with an awareness of the tangible threats faced by you and your clients, and mechanisms that have been developed in order to address those threats. Irrespective of the size of your organisation, you will be equipped to understand strategies and tools you may develop yourself, take pragmatic measures, and provide informed support to your clients.

The 21st century presents a number of unprecedented and interrelated global challenges. Population growth, climate change, resource depletion, including energy and water, and food security are no longer the sole concern of governments or fragile communities. Instead, corporates now recognize that what were once viewed as inconsequential ‘externalities’ increasingly represent a clear threat to their current and future viability, particularly where those businesses operate extended and complex supply chains.

Following in the footsteps of the great ‘paper architects’ of architectural history, RIBA North East practices are invited to share their ‘Unbuilt North East’. Share your favourite schemes that never got built, your thesis scheme from the pre-computer era or a competition entry that you still dream about.

There are two key points of criteria that must be adhered to: the proposal has to be sited in the North East of England and it can’t be for a scheme that was designed and then built by separate practices.

We are looking for up to 10 RIBA Chartered Practices to deliver presentations in the entertaining Pecha Kucha format, 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide and can include from 1no. to 20no.
