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.

Rethinking current norms in construction is an urgent and complex challenge. The way in which we operate, produce and restore our built environment must be systemically and radically altered. Mobilising such changes demands cross-sectoral, co-operative and creative relationships that harnesses our collective agency. As such, The Klosters Forum looks forward to bringing together leaders, thinkers and doers to discuss and collaborate on new approaches to designing and reimagining a built environment at one, rather than at odds with, our natural environment.
