Celebrated building designer, awards judge, vehicle designer, sailor and head of sustainable design firm Envirotecture and also a rural fire fighter, Dick Clarke has spent nearly 40 years designing for and working in the Australian environment.

He speaks openly and candidly about the reasons behind the devastation of the recent bushfires across the country, why they happened, how embracing climate science will ensure the severity of any future bushfires will be minimised and how the design community must be at the forefront of changing the way we design and build our homes so that the impact of the next bushfires will hopefully not be anywhere near as catastrophic as these in 2019/2020.
