The Italian Forum Piazza is the forum for community and cultural activities. With the involvement of local council, there is an exciting opportunity to establish a community garden within the Piazza. Our goal is to involve the residents and local community, including local schools, to manage and reap the benefits of this garden’s produce and beauty.

Where rainwater is currently drained away, plans are underway to capture this water in order to sustainably irrigate the gardens.

Building Management is also in the process of installing energy efficient lighting across the building. It is estimated that this will save approximately 400,000 kilowatts of electricity, equivalent to nearly 400 tonnes of carbon each year!

Another energy efficiency programme currently under planning stage is the installation of solar panels on the roof of the building, which has enormous potential to bring the Italian Forum closer to being carbon neutral.
