In conversation with Kat Scott

In conversation with Kat Scott

BLOG · BY TTF FLEGT COMMUNICATIONS EXECUTIVE LUCY BEDRY · 19 August 2020

As we reach the end of Conversations about Climate Change timber design competition, we announce the next stage of our FLEGT communications.

2020 was meant to be the ‘year of climate action’ and super year for the climate and forests. At the Timber Trade Federation, we are eager to continue these much needed conversations.

Our first ‘In Conversation with’ is Kat Scott, Architects’ Climate Action Network coordinator.

Kat will facilitate discussion from ACAN, engaging with David Hopkins, CEO of the Timber Trade Federation, in a conversation about climate change with a focus on tropical timber.

She will examine Dave around aspects of the environmental impact of timber – asking what you have always wanted to know but might have been too afraid to ask – as Dave sets out the case for the use of FLEGT licenced tropical timber.

The conversation between the pair, aims to demystify FLEGT licensing, and get to the heart of important questions for designers, makers and specifiers conscious of the significance of a material’s provenience and supply chain.

Join the conversation here @ 5pm on Thursday 20th August. Follow the Building Centre on Instagram to receive a notification when they go live and ask your own questions in the live chat.

This page will be updated to include dialogue on the conversation after the event has finished.
