Four futures, one choice: options for the digital built Britain of 2040

Experts from the Centre for Digital Built Britain will be talking about their new book at a panel discussion hosted by Dr Erika Parn.

Four Futures, One Choice, a new, plain-language e-book written by experts from the Centre for Digital Built Britain in Cambridge, presents four future scenarios for what the construction sector of 2040 could look like, depending on the choices we make today. It provides a future lens enabling us to view, with clarity and detail, four scenarios of what Britain could look like in 2040, depending upon the decisions that are made now, in these unprecedented times. While we can't guarantee with any certainty the outcomes our decisions will have, exploring future scenarios helps us identify the direction we would prefer and ultimately which way we should steer. The book sets out suggested actions that experts have suggested would result in a fairer, greener future for all.

This panel discussion, hosted by Dr Erika Parn, will feature questions and answers from the authors, including CCHPR's Dr Richmond Ehwi, about their work. More details from the CDBB's website.
