Open call launches for COP26 Built Environment Virtual Pavilion

ASBP and a coalition of over 100 partner organisations, of which UKGBC is acting as secretariat, has launched an international Open Call for projects and a centrepiece installation to form part of the global COP26 Built Environment Virtual Pavilion, which will be delivered as part of COP26 in November.

As announced last month, the Virtual Pavilion will explore key sustainability themes through a digital exhibition of global projects and places, as well as a major series of events and downloadable content. To ensure the very best and most impactful projects are chosen, an Open Call has been launched for entries to two elements of the Virtual Pavilion – exemplary projects for the exhibition and a sustainability-focused installation that will act as a centrepiece within the exhibition.

Exhibition Open Call

The Open Call is seeking global projects, built or planned, that best represent the built environment sector and its role in tackling the climate and ecological crisis. Submissions are expected to exhibit outstanding performance against at least one of the Virtual Pavilion’s environmental themes: climate mitigation, climate adaptation, natural resource use, and nature and biodiversity – whilst demonstrating how they also benefit people and communities. The final exhibition will feature a diversity of project types, with different contexts and geographies, each of which will have a virtual space within the exhibition.

Deadline for entries – Monday 2nd August 2021
