Other Conversations

- SEDA “Big Conversation” (Scottish Ecological Design Association)

- A series of discussions on “The Just Transition in the Built Environment & Construction”

- Consultation, via the Common Weal, on the Passivhaus Bill.

Malcolm is trying to suggest that these conversations should not just produce Roadshows and Reports – at which Scotland is “World-Class” - but workable and useful models for our abundant public built environment champions to promote.
