Welcome to Learn at
Constructive Voices

Learn at Constructive Voices is a natural evolution of the global media brand, Constructive Voices. In this learning centre, you will find lessons from top experts worldwide. We feature Thought Leaders who are renowned for making a positive difference.

Originally established as a podcast in April 2021, Constructive Voices quickly gained a worldwide audience that seeks to learn from top authorities in the built environment sectors. Currently, the podcast is ranked in the top 1.5% of all podcasts worldwide.

From the early days, the production team sought out some of the most important topics of our time. Episodes and events have brought together panellists from the World Meteorological Organisation, the World Green Building Council, AtkinsRéalis, Trimble, Pick Everard, and Earth Trust.

Panellists explored issues such as the outcomes of COP26, COP27 and analysed biodiversity in the built environment.

Through some of the relationships built up over time, Constructive Voices has gathered an exceptional group of experts to produce a training series inspired by the BNG law that came into force on February 12, 2024. This course is the first of many thought leader courses to be created.
