On October 26, the Bartlett and Places convened a panel of scholars and designers to explore the question: “Climate change adaptation and social justice: what is the role of the built environment?” The panel, which featured Places authors Brett Milligan, Kiel Moe, and Lizzie Yarina, as well as Dusty Gedge, Scott Allan Orr, and Danielle Zoe Rivera, discussed how architectural and urban interventions might enable “a resilient and socially just adaptation process.”

Chaired by Christoph Lindner, dean of the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, the discussion was part of the school’s Together for Climate Action campaign, a series of events leading up to COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference being held in Glasgow from October 31 to November 12.
