SPAB's Sustainability of Traditional Buildings conference takes place online only this year.

SPAB's Sustainability of Traditional Buildings conference takes place online only this year on 6, 8 and 13 October. 

It is hosted by SPAB (Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings) and the Sustainable Traditional Buildings Alliance (STBA). It will focus on the key issues of: embodied carbon (6 October); skills (8 October); research (13 October).

Some of the country’s leading experts will explain the underlying issues, explore potential solutions and answer questions in Q&A sessions.

SPAB is also looking for designs of new T-shirts and is holding a competition to encourage you to submit your proposals. The only stipulation is that it must include the SPAB logo. Two winners will receive T-shirts bearing their designs. Deadline is Friday 2 October. Click here to enter
