Sustainable Built Environment 2016: Transition Zero − SBE16
The SBE16 series conference ‘Sustainable Built Environment – Transition Zero’ was held on 7 and 8 April 2016, under the auspices of the European Union. Over 200 participants attended the conference. Based on the positive reactions (appreciation score: 7.8 out of 10) we can look back at a successful event.
The overall theme was ‘Transition Zero: From Demonstrations to large-scale NET-Zero Refurbishment’, covering four topics: upscaling, governance, small urban area and circular processes.
The plenary programme had a line-up of inspiring keynote speakers, such as the Dutch Minister for Housing Stef Blok, Member of the European parliament Gerben-Jan Gerbrandy, ZED-Factory Principal Bill Dunster and the famous Dutch ecological architect Thomas Rau. The conference was chaired by Frits Verhey, Board Member of the TKI Urban Energy, and Jacqueline Cramer, Strategic Advisor at the Utrecht Sustainability Institute.
In addition, there were eight parallel sessions featuring 36 presentations. One of the sessions on 8 April was the Young Professionals Event (YPE), in which five students teams were competing for the Transition Zero Award. Winner of the award was the team of Zuyd University of Applied Sciences. From now on the YPE will be an annual event.
