At the AIA National Convention in June, we saw some hopeful and positive steps with the declaration of Urgent and Sustained Climate Action.
The AIA's resolution calls for its 94,000 members worldwide to "exponentially accelerate the decarbonization of buildings, the building sector, and the built environment."
Ask* for a Better World has been mobilized by the Consulting Architects of Alberta to deliver “Pitching Green” workshops in Edmonton and Calgary, to help make the case for carbon neutral and net zero energy architecture. Stay tuned for dates in early autumn.
It’s imperative we act now and work with determination as we have taken an oath as architects to ensure the public good.
