Sustainable Design Forum

About the Event

SDC (Sustainable Design Collective) is a think tank of top A&D firms from the UK. After successfully hosting 5 collective meetings in 2022 the members made the decision in 2023 to open conversations with suppliers and manufacturers to hear about their efforts towards sustainability; an interactive event for workplace designers to learn and hear from manufacturers and suppliers about efforts towards greater sustainability.


Unlike larger exhibitions, this first of it’s kind event is organised by the team at SDC and Women in Office Design and is intended specifically for architects and designers. Hosted on a smaller scale, this forum will provide the opportunity for networking and purposeful conversations about our industry’s efforts towards sustainability.


The first Sustainable Design Forum was held in April 2023, to much positive feedback – with a 2024 event already in the planning stages.
