The Future of the Built Environment

For 2022/2023 The Klosters Forum will focus on the Future of the Built Environment; the places in which we live, work and play.

The way in which we create, operate and renew the buildings in which we reside stunts biodiversity, pollutes ecosystems and nurtures unsustainable lifestyles. What and how we construct is a major contributing factor to the climate crisis.


The construction industry and the existing built environment are major agents of the state of climate and ecological emergency we face.

For a sustainable future, urban designers and architects will play a pivotal role in designing the creation of healthy, resilient, and sustainable environments for our growing population.
