The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) will be holding Transform 2021 as a virtual event on March 17–18.

Transform is the GBCA’s flagship event for sustainability in the built environment. Transform Online 2021 will explore how we can drive change and action for our places and people, as we aim for resilient, healthy, net zero cities and communities.

“Join our two-day conference, where we tackle the big challenges of how we build back better with circular, positive sustainability strategies,” says the GBCA.

The conference will tackle the big challenges and examine critical topics including:

  • Global perspectives and local opportunities to create resilient places
  • Steps to move from the linear to circular as we seek to make the circular economy tangible
