Webinar: Future Buildings
If these are questions you’ve been grappling with, Julie’s Bicycle is on-hand to help you navigate your sustainable capital projects, from conception through to completion.
Cultural buildings define place, community and identity, where people can learn, challenge and enjoy collective experiences.
However, buildings are also a major source of impact on the environment and on our quality of life and work.

The way that they are designed, constructed, maintained and operated has a major role to play in determining the extent to which we can live within our planetary limits. Despite the opportunities, many capital projects currently fall short of their environmental aspirations due to conflicting priorities and a lack of knowledge, planning, expertise, and cost.
Julie’s Bicycle’s Fit for the Future Toolkit is designed to support organisations to overcome these hurdles and achieve significant environmental improvements in capital projects. It details how – through intelligent design, materials, energy efficiency, water management and ecological enhancement – arts organisations are beginning to realise the benefits of environmental action, from financial resilience to reputational benefits and audience development.
In this webinar Julie’s Bicycle will be joined by case study guest speakers for a live discussion and practical advice on developing sustainable building projects.
Our special guest is Robert Longthorne, Building Development Director at Liverpool Everyman.
We will cover:
- An introduction to the Julie’s Bicycle Fit for the Future Toolkit
- The value of environmentally sustainable buildings
- Integrating environmental sustainability across project life cycles
- Understanding, evaluating and monitoring environmental performance
- Environmental technologies and solutions
- Guest speaker case study - sharing knowledge and experience
- Opportunity for Q&A
This webinar has been designed for directors and managers in arts organisations who are developing, or preparing to develop, capital projects.
