23.-25.11.2022, Virtual conference


The world is becoming increasingly urbanized. Global material use is expected to more than double by 2060, and the materials used in the building and construction sector will comprise a third of this rise. Greenhouse gas emissions will also increase because of the material used.

Economic growth in construction and utilities is expected to increase by over 2,5 between 2011 and 2060. Based on current trends, it is estimated that the total waste generated in the world will double from nearly 2 billion tonnes in 2016 to about 4 billion tonnes by 2050.

Such trends call for an urgent questioning of current ways of planning, developing, and operating built environments. Present practices are often still locked into linear methods of extracting nature’s resources and producing waste. It is difficult to consider alternative approaches through which mitigation and adaptation goals may be achieved simultaneously while supporting sustainable businesses. Circular approaches present viable alternatives to underpin the transition to a decarbonized world while at the same time meeting the goals of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

SBEfin2022 Helsinki Conference on emerging concepts for sustainable built environment presents novel concepts on inclusive and resilient cities, circular neighborhoods, responsibly sourced materials, and construction value chains and calls for new skills and new businesses. The Conference provides Special tracks for focused workshops and tackling relevant challenges.

The papers will be reviewed according to the themes to which they are submitted. The sessions will, however, be organized based on the topics of the papers so that the discussions in each session have a fluent flow even across scales. It means that e.g. circular neighborhood and circular product presentations can be placed in the same session.


Organizers want to pay attention to environmental aspects and thus the SBEfin2022 Helsinki Conference will be organized virtually.
