About this webinar

This course addresses the UN Sustainable Development Goal for Reduced Inequalities and how the creators of the built world can facilitate this goal. Inequality is growing as explosively as the global population. What is the basis for the inequalities, how can they threaten the continued growth and development of the world’s societies - and even more importantly - can the built world reduce or even eliminate inequality? Join us to see how sustainable equity can be built by understanding how we can Change By Design.
