Renew Toowoomba Branch presents an evening forum with Dick Clarke. Dick will address questions like: What is the real meaning of building sustainably? How do we do it? How is our current Building Code limiting our ability to address climate change? What's needed to get us in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement and beyond (because the 'Code' won't do it)? Where are we at in terms of building performance? What do we need and how do we bridge the shortfall? Dick will also cover encouraging international examples of getting it right.
