Greening our skylines - can tower blocks be part of a city's sustainable future?


The challenges, opportunities and lessons from retrofit

This event launched a new Green Alliance report on the challenge that cities and towns face in retrofitting complex housing environments such as tower blocks. A dynamic panel discussed the obstacles and ways forward, and offered insights from local authority, community and technical perspectives. 

As the debate about city devolution rapidly gains pace, this event was a stimulating opportunity, considering how cities can ensure that existing tower blocks become part of their sustainable futures and avoid being relegated to the past.
