    Improving Lives With A Better Built Environment


    Hear from and meet leading experts discussing their work to deliver positive and measurable impacts on wellbeing, sustainability and resilience in the built environment.

    You will also have the opportunity to:

    • explore an Innovation Zone showcasing projects on global challenges such as increased urbanisation, the aging population and climate change,
    • see behind the scenes of the partnerships delivering this work,
    • discuss impact assessments made possible by new technologies and ways of working with data,
    • shape the BRE Trust’s future priorities and partnerships,
    • help to build a delivery network of organisations with shared goals that support the work of your organisation and the BRE Trust’s vision.


    The BRE Trust is an independent charity that supports research and education programmes designed to help deliver buildings and communities in which people can live well and achieve their goals. At the BRE Trust Conference 2020 we will be outlining the future focus of our research and education programme and looking for like-minded organisations to partner with to help address some of the 21st century’s biggest challenges.

    From supportive adaptation of homes for independent living, to sustainable and resilient post-disaster shelter, and to safer, more inclusive home, high street, and office conditions, the BRE Trust wants to support actors working to improve the built environment for all. Join us on the 25th February to find out more about our areas of work, including our humanitarian programme, the biophilic office project, independent living support, fire safety research, and much more.

    Visit our showcase zones and join our networks to find out how we can work together.
