Speech Title: City Form, The Pedestrian Realm and Zero Pollution: Engaging Urban Design in Worldwide Pathways of Low Carbon Sustainability  城市形态、步行领域和零污染:参与全球低碳可持续发展道路的城市设计


Abstract: Recently the city of Barcelona implemented   the superblock model of city streets where traffic is reduced to close to zero, with the space formerly occupied by cars given over to pedestrians and play areas. It was found that the air quality level regularly exceeds the World Health Organization’s legal limits such as nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and superblocks, eco strategies were expected to   reduce to ambient levels of NO2 by 24%, from the current level of 47 micrograms per cubic metre to 36 micrograms per cubic metre. To implement such a model in the tropical cities of Asia and Nusantara, the issue of urban experience and thermal comfort is crucial. Besides walkability, one must monitor the increasingly current carbon emissions and Energy data. a global comparison is showing the advantages of compact cities and compact airconditioned buildings interspersed by gardens. The keynote highlights benefits in studying advantages of past tropical traditional cities built in the littoral region. The emerging advantages of compact cities will be its increased walkability and permeability index must be balanced with interspersing the civil and architecture structures with increased greenery and water bodies (both horizontal and vertical) to continuously absorb pollution. Under densed conditions, the challenge for public spaces is to provide comfort at the pedestrian level zone simultaneously. Thus, at the elevated urban density and heightened compactness of building forms, the city must   facilitate not only a reduction in the carbon polluting impact of transportation, but the ability to experience climate and culture under highly densed conditions. The resulting carbon equation will elevate the weightage of buildings in its role and impact as carbon emitters, thereby heightening the importance of low energy technologies and strategies to reduce low term operational costs of buildings.

Speech Title: CARBON FOOTPRINT ASSESSMENT OF THE CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS : CHALLENGES AND FUTURE TOWARDS ACHIEVING BETTER LOW-CARBON NATION  建筑材料的碳足迹评估:实现更好的低碳国家的挑战和未来


Abstract:  The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, has been adopted by all United Nation members state since 2015. Under the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, 3 goals mainly no.7 Affordable and Clean Energy, no.11 Sustainable Cities and Communities, and also no.13 Climate Change has been the focus towards improving the present construction industry and becoming a better country in reducing the carbon, pollutions and energy been released to the atmosphere in the current global warming scenario. The increasing of carbon emissions in our atmosphere has becoming an environmental issue due to climate change and global warming. The effect of all this additional carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is that the global temperature of the planet is increasing, including global warming, leading to unpredictable daily climate changes such as floods, hurricanes, heatwaves, and droughts. Global warming is the primary concern in terms of environmental impact on the climate and geography of our planet. CO2 is responsible for the increase in temperature and much research has been done on how we can reduce the effect of CO2 on the environment. The construction industry is one of the biggest carbon emitter’s activities in the world. The amount of carbon emission is higher compared to transportation and industry. In fact, buildings are responsible for more than one-third of total energy consumption and related to GHGs emission in society, in both developed and developing countries. The global demand for energy from buildings and the construction of buildings is still increasing through improved energy accessibility in developing countries, expanded acquisition and utilisation of energy-using devices and the fast growth of the global floor area of buildings, which is now almost 3%. Viewing the CO2 emissions, it is mainly contributed by the construction process, materials and equipment. This shall become future construction player main concern in construction of high rise green residential building. Hence, in order to minimize the increased in carbon emissions from constructions of the building, several studies have identified some of the effective carbon assessment tools for construction projects such as the Inventory of Carbon & Energy (ICE) has been developed in the UK, but yet it is still lack of implementation and been used in most of the country.
