FUTURE EVENT 06-19-18: Design for Circularity

March 29, 2018 / Posted by Julius Møller MeilstrupJulius Møller Meilstrup / Activities, New York

A building is usually reduced to a ‘material cemetery’ at the end of its life. We currently do not recycle all of the valuable materials contained within it, which is why construction waste represents a huge field of untapped resources. Join us for an exciting and interactive evening where we will examine how we can transform the building industry from its current ‘throw-away’ to a circular model.

PAST EVENT 03-22-18: Solving the Blue Infrastructure Crisis

March 22, 2018 / Posted by Julius Møller MeilstrupJulius Møller Meilstrup / Activities, New York

Water as an infrastructure asset is emblematic of the larger, global infrastructure crisis we are experiencing, particularly in older urban areas where resources are strained. As a result of decades of under-investment in this area, new ways of approaching financing and collaboration among public and private partners are needed. On UN World Water Day together with the NY Blue Tech network and AECOM, Danish Cleantech Hub convened water infrastructure experts from the US and Europe for a trans-Atlantic half-day conference to share findings and best practices.
