Building a sustainable future


Building a sustainable future

Tot op de bodem
If we want a sustainable future we need new materials and radically different ways of building. Can we make that happen? With chemist Prof. Nathalie Katsonis.

In an age of climate crisis, why do we keep building our houses and cities the way we always have? Resource scarcity forces us to come up with new solutions. Chemist Prof. Nathalie Katsonis (RUG) uses nature as a source of inspiration to develop biodegradable, energy-efficient materials. Professor of Climate Design and Sustainability Andy van den Dobbelsteen (TU Delft) proposes a radical shift in the way we construct our buildings. What will the future look like?

In collaboration with the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development (UU) & strategic theme Pathways to Sustainability (UU).
