“Investing in climate through tech” is our theme of the year and like previous events we want to give the stage to the brightest minds, bravest forerunners, most revolutionary research and most advanced solutions in the field of digital built environment. It is crucial that our industry invests money, time and intellectual capital to solve the climate crisis. What is the role of technology in this?

CALL FOR AWARDS OPENS IN MARCH 2023 

In March we will launch the call for best practices for the WDBE Awards. We will select 8 categories in which anyone working in the built environment can submit a project, solution or other action to be involved.  

For the Awards, our jury will go through the applications and shortlist three nominations to advance to the Awards gala taking place 20 September in Helsinki. 

All submissions shall be in the form of pitching videos. These short videos will be also shared through WDBE organisers’ communications platforms. 

The WDBE activities are co-created by our community of future-builders. This is your chance to showcase your extraordinary expertise for the global WDBE community. We can discuss all the elements of the WDBE partnership packages together to find the best fit for your organisation.
