Climate and Conservation 8
Episode 8: ‘Climate and Conservation’ with Alan ForsterDr Alan Forster discusses his wide-ranging research on conservation and sustainability, why maintenance and repair should be prioritised, and what higher education is contributing to our understanding of carbon in the historic built environment.
Climate and Conservation 6
Episode 6: ‘Climate and Conservation’ with Adala Leeson & Douglas PhillipsAdala Leeson and Douglas Phillips discuss why understanding heritage values and carbon in the built environment is critical in transitioning to a lower-carbon economy, how to go about expressing these complex concepts to the public, and how the heritage sector must cooperate and collaborate with others to achieve success.

Episode 9: ‘Climate and Conservation’ with Dave ChetwynDave Chetwyn discusses how good planning and urban design practice and policy, with lessons learned from historic places and considering the natural environment and local context, increase places’ sustainability and economic opportunity.
Climate and Conservation 10
Episode 10: ‘Climate and Conservation’ with Crispin Edwards & Roy LewisCrispin Edwards and Roy Lewis discuss why conservation of the historic environment is inherently sustainable, the role of the conservation professional in achieving successful outcomes through a balanced approach, and how we might ensure those working on traditional and historic buildings have requisite skills and competencies.
Climate and Conservation 5
Episode 5: ‘Climate and Conservation’ with John EdwardsJohn Edwards discusses why taking a risk-based approach to improving building elements, understanding traditional buildings and how they perform, and implementing a sophisticated quality regime are all crucial to getting retrofit right.
Climate and Conservation 4
Episode 4: ‘Climate and Conservation’ with Nigel GriffithsNigel Griffiths discusses recent heritage and climate policy and why EPC’s need a fundamental rethink, how practitioners and homeowners alike can understand their buildings and ensure planned improvements don’t go wrong, and how a broader policy aim of regenerating places is the right path to sustainability, health, and wellbeing.
Climate and Conservation 3
Episode 3: ‘Climate and Conservation’ with Stephanie PhillipsStephanie Phillips discusses all things deconstruction, including why it’s an optimal alternative to destruction, how it helps empower communities and the circular economy, and how we can look to the past to rediscover deconstruction skills.

Episode 7: ‘Climate and Conservation’ with Lori FerrisLori Ferris discusses how to encourage carbon reduction strategies through design, how climate action planning can incentivise building reuse, and a new tool owners can use to see the carbon implications of prospective development plans.
Climate and Conservation 1
Episode 1: ‘Climate and Conservation’ with Carl ElefanteCarl Elefante discusses why we need to start valuing all our existing buildings, the maths around reduced carbon emissions from retrofitting, and how heritage organisations hold the key to helping people around the world come together to meet the challenge of climate change.
