What role can education estates play in building sustainable societies?
We know we can’t afford to slow down in our efforts to build sustainable societies that promise value and equity for all. Despite increasing pressures our collective pace must not stall – the cost of inaction outweighs all other considerations.
So, can we pull together the brightest minds to reimagine a brighter future?
One year on from the publication of our ground-breaking Sustainable Buildings Monitor research report, which shone a light on where we were on our journey to charting a net zero legacy for our cities, towns and communities, what’s next? We are now setting out to reimagine how we measure and create value of our estates, using a model that replaces redundant, purely financial metrics – where value is instead determined holistically, by true societal benefit and outcomes.
The ISG team is involved in several sessions at the event, expanding on these themes:
Tuesday 18 October
Conference session: chaired by Jane O’Leary, Strategic Advisor for Education – ISG
Helping Clients Achieve Net Zero
Wednesday 19 October
Conference session: panel guests Jane O’Leary, Strategic Advisor for Education and Carrie-Ann Huelin, Group Head of Social Value - ISG
Gender Diversity & Inclusion in Education and Construction
Our team will also be available to continue the conversation on stand 210 in the exhibition area. Come and discuss your ideas on the role that education estates can play in building sustainable societies, and we’ll donate one tree for every idea received to one of our current school projects.
We’ll also be excitedly awaiting the announcement of the Education Estates Awards on 18 October, where we are shortlisted in five categories. In addition to Contractor of the Year, we’ve also got four project shortlists: STEAM Academy at Bridgend College; South Point Primary School, Barry; the SEND Schools Programme for Manchester City Council and Chelveston Road School, Rushden.
We look forward to seeing you at Education Estates – you can sign up here to attend.
