Sustainability as a word has been stolen, its meaning washed away or lost in a political sea. The time has come to reclaim it as our own. At this lecture we will break down its components to help architects identify where it is and how we can rejuvenate the RIAS Sustainability Accreditation and Sustainability Policy. As a starting point we will use Howard Liddell & Sandy Halliday's book ‘Eco Minimalism’ and it’s four chapter headings Fire, Water, Air and Earth supplemented by an additional fifth element (Aether) to consider social sustainability.

** All events start at 18:00 in the Billiards Room of the Mackintosh at the Willow in Sauchiehall Street with Teas and Coffee served from 17.30.**
