Keynote Speaker – Gary Lawrence

We are excited to announce that we have several keynote speakers in discussion for Balance-Unbalance 2015.

The first of whom we can announce today is Gary Lawrence from AECOM.

Gary is the Chief Sustainability officer at AECOM and has recently overseen a massive project to redevelop water catchment and drinking water systems for Malaysia and is for instance working on global agreements for the Nature Conservancy with governments  to develop standards for resilient communities – examining risk factors and infrastructure factors that make communities and environments resilient to natural disaster, so they fail softly and are easily recoverable.

We are planning a two day workshop with Gary Lawrence prior to the conference – the workshop will be March 25-26, and we  invite you to be involved – planners, architects, designers and building code writers, artists, NGO’s ….  to engage around these issues.
