Conference looks at growing the BEST sustainable talent

People involved or interested in the built environment sector in Wales, issues of equality and diversity, or education and training, are being invited to a special conference in Cardiff.

The free half-day event, Growing the BEST Sustainable Talent for Wales, is organised by Built Environment Sustainability Training (BEST), which is based in the Welsh School of Architecture at Cardiff University, and aims to put Wales at the forefront of sustainability expertise.

Supported by the European Social Fund, through the Welsh Government, BEST offers fully subsidised courses to people who live or work in one of Wales’ Convergence areas.

• Can good Equality & Diversity practice benefit companies in the Welsh built environment sector?
• How can we enable/empower young people to achieve our future built environment sustainability goals?

The conference, on July 2nd, starts with coffee on arrival and ends with an informal buffet lunch in the striking surroundings of the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.
