Re-generation wood - 2 CFP
Wood has always been a widely used material in the architecture and design sector, because of its diverse characteristics, features and properties.
Over the years, the indiscriminate use of this material has led to the demolition of entire forests and resulted in damage to the natural ecosystem.
The conference will examine how the focus on sustainability and the introduction of increasingly stringent international environmental standards has gradually steered the market towards a more controlled use of resources and therefore also of the wood, and towards increased protection and "re-generation" of materials.
Nowadays, companies, planners and designers are evidently making more sustainable and environmentally and socially informed design choices. They are pursuing a choice of materials that enhance the value of the product and the lifecycle of materials and that encourage the development of the "circular economy."
In this context, wood is a material that must be protected and its regeneration is a key objective for ensuring the continuity of its use and enhancing the value of natural resources.Back to home page
