We live on credit. Natural resources are running out. Copper and zinc will run out in about 20 years. Lead resources will last for even less. We can and must strive as well as convince people to construct buildings in a sustainable way, having sufficient knowledge of it.Ewa Kuryłowicz, Architect, Kuryłowicz & Associates, 4 Design Days
According to surveys, only 18% of construction companies care about the environment. That is why co-operation between architects and companies carrying out construction projects is so important. This co-operation must be intensified so that we begin to build wisely.Marcin Szczelina, Architecture Critic, 4 Design Days
In my country, a special working group has been established and is headed by the Prime Minister of the Netherlands. The team deals with potential investment in smart urban solutions, building houses, energy saving and mobility. The group is also working on the circular economy.Ron J.P.M. van Dartel, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Poland, 4 Design Days
In the Netherlands, there are laws that force developers to comply with the rules on energy use. Complying with those laws is a challenge – architects also need to be creative. However, laws do not always keep pace with reality.Pieter van Os, Circo, 4 Design Days
Sustainable construction should not focus solely on technical issues. What is important to us, architects, is to find solutions that will inspire people to use sustainable solutions in buildings.Oliver Heath, Founder, Heath Design Ltd., 4 Design Days

Now, in fact, people do not give a hoot about it. Except in individual cases…Robert Majkut, Designer, CEO Robert Majkut Design, 4 Design Days
