The built environment defines our world. We shape our environment and it shapes our lives and those of future generations. We shape it through direct processes of planning, construction, use, renovation, renewal and replacement. But our built environment is also a product of mankind’s social, political and economic developments.

With this holistic view in mind, the World Built Environment Forum is a global network of built environment professionals and their stakeholders aimed at combining knowledge, skills and resources to create and manage the built environment that global populations need. It sets the standard for dialogue and cooperation that is vital for our sector.

Uniquely, the World Built Environment Forum Annual Summit brings together stakeholders from all aspects of the sector to explore common issues, how these interact across the built environment, and to build a basis for collaboration between disciplines.

The Annual Summit will:

  • explore how global macro trends will affect the built environment of the future, with a focus on China and wider Asia. What strategies should we adopt to take account of disruptive changes in order to create and sustain vibrant real estate markets, and to fund infrastructure needs? How can the construction industry meet pressing demands while adapting to the changing nature of cities that need to serve urban populations for generations to come?
  • take One Belt One Road as a reference point for all these issues. Looking at the built environment from the perspective of cities along the Belt and Road what lessons can be learned from the world’s leading gateway cities, and from city development in China? How can Chinese cities attract investment and how can cities globally compete for Chinese foreign direct investment in infrastructure and real estate?
