The Sustainable Task Force has been operating for over a year, and this workshop aims to be a first, creating an exciting way to bring together at one time as many members as possible to take part in a live linked workshop on the key areas where it has been identified that acoustics in practice can contribute to a sustainable future. This will be about knowledge sharing around the progress made, providing a TOOLBOX, exploring examples of action and discussing how best to take things forward. Speakers include those from outside the field as well as acousticians to help provide coherence. Questions will be taken from around the UK and the event captured as a future CPD resource.
