ADMISSION FREE

 

The challenges of remaking places - whether city, town or country - are set in the context of accelerating climate change.
4x4 2006 will bring a mix of international and regional contributors to investigate and present issues, solutions and design under the overall heading - “International Green” .
The 4 weeks will be themed around the four elements of Air, Earth, Fire and Water.
Contributions will include topics such as designing with land forms, food policy, eco-cites in China, creative urban art in Cuba, carbon neutrality in Germany, new water projects in Yorkshire, energy sources and systems and innovative design solutions.
These will be presented by people actively engaged in delivering projects and driving policy.
4x4 making places provides space for both presentation and debate.

The “
4x4 making places” forum is to be held in  March 2006. This will be its sixth year with the working title of International Green!
4x4 will take place in Leeds on Thursday evenings on March 2, March 9, March 16 and March 23 beginning at 6.00pm. The format is for 4 speakers each week with a chairperson, followed by debate. Attendees are from across the region and include professionals, developers, administrators, politicians, students, citizens, and more. Based on previous years we can expect to get over 300  people to each evening.
4x4 making places is a unique forum and is supported by Yorkshire Forward, Concourse, CABE, The Arts Council for England, Leeds Initiative, English Heritage, and many other organisations.
4x4 is CPD accredited with all RIBA, RTPI, ICE, RICS, Landscape Institute, and we are seeking Law Society Accreditation for this year. 4x4 has an ongoing media partnership with Yorkshire Insider and receives national and regional coverage. 4x4 is free at the point of delivery!
