The UK Shelter Forum 21 was held on the 17th of November 2017 in Watford and was co-hosted by BRE and CRS. The theme of the forum was “Sustainability and Resilience”. We also had the pleasure to assist to the official opening of the shelter exhibit at BRE’s innovation park. The Forum was held in commemoration of Graham Saunders.
We would like to thank all attendees for the great discussions and presentations we had throughout the day. Thank you also to the notetakers whose notes can be found underneath.
