A quarter million people from 47 different countries gathered here on February 20, 2007 to participate in The 2010 Imperative: A Global Emergency Teach-in conducted by Architecture 2030. During this interactive webcast, 2030 issued the 2030 Challenge and the 2010 Imperative, specific achievable strategies to transform the built environment. These strategies are designed to immediately stabilize energy consumption and GHG emissions in the Building Sector, and then reverse them to acceptable levels over the next twenty years.

Architecture 2030 thanks all those who participated in the webcast!
