Standing Strong 

The theme of this year’s festival is “Standing Strong”, which will highlight the value of regular building maintenance and community approaches to looking after buildings and places. It will also examine the challenges of retrofitting buildings to address the climate emergency and achieve net-zero carbon emission targets.
