THE University of Brighton is hosting an exhibition and seminars at a global design and build show dedicated to promoting sustainability and slashing waste.

Ecobuild 2018, the largest free-to-attend show of its kind in the world, runs from March 6 at ExceL London and comprises three days of talks, presentations, workshops and debates engaged with waste as a global issue.

One of the Brighton speakers will be Cat Fletcher, Reuse Manager Brighton and Hove City Council,

Responsible Futures – the University of Brighton’s research-focused initiative aimed at encouraging sustainable economic growth, improved environments and more inclusive societies – is supporting the university’s ‘WasteZone’ symposium and exhibition.

WasteZone was curated by architect and senior lecturer Duncan Baker-Brown and Principal Lecturer Nick Gant, from the School of Architecture and Design.

There will be more than 20 speakers discussing innovative design solutions aimed at cleaning up waste and working with new materials that will one day turn into compost.
