This free event, hosted by the Place and Experience research group at the University of Westminster, will bring together tourism and event professionals and academics to discuss practical solutions for the responsible consumption and production of space.

Tourism and event experiences have the power to create significant change in people, places and organisations. While many of these changes are positive, others can be very detrimental to the environment, spaces, and lives of the residents where these activities take place.

This event will consist of a panel from the tourism and events community, including: Priya Narain (KERB); Claudio Giambrone (Wembley Park London); Stroma Cole (Equality in Tourism); Belvin Tawuya (Africa Day Every Day); Claire O’Neill (A Greener Future) Chiara Orefice (University of Westminster); Louise Storch (British Standards Institute). Ilaria Pappalepore from the University of Westminster will chair the panel.

Our panellists will share their views and experiences on the responsible consumption and production of space. We will then invite our audience and speakers to engage in the 3-minute active solution challenge: can you suggest and illustrate in 3 minutes a sustainable, real-life solution to a problem affecting the consumption and production of space? Participants will get the opportunity to collaborate and share best practices, which they will be able to apply to their own professional context as a result.

This event is part of the London Festival of Architecture 2024.
