Watch: Climate Change and the Built Environment – where are we now?
In a riveting Master Series presentation to a packed house at Greenbuild 2013 in Philadelphia, Architecture 2030 Founder and CEO Ed Mazria delivered the blueprint for creating a world that is sustainable, resilient, accesses renewable resources, meets the 2030 Challenge targets, and can adapt to the vagaries of climate change. He connected the dots between science, energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, architecture, planning, and construction.
Greenbuild 2013 also marked the world release of the 2030 Palette, Architecture 2030’s latest catalyst for transforming the built environment. The 2030 Palette is a powerful new online tool that puts the principles and actions behind livable, low-carbon and resilient built environments at the fingertips of architects, planners, and designers worldwide.
In his presentation, Mazria called on the audience to leverage the power of social media to get the word out about the 2030 Palette. By the end of the day, #2030Palette was trending nationally on Twitter, with a reach of 550,000 worldwide. You can check out the Storify of the 2030 Palette Launch.
