The AIA+2030 Professional Series enables design professionals to create buildings that meet the energy reduction targets of the 2030 Challenge.
A full 10, four-hour sessions offered over a one-year period transmit the strategies and tools needed to reach 60% to 100% reductions in fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in building design, giving professionals the skills to create next-generation, high-performance buildings and their firms a “sustainability edge” in the marketplace.
Nationwide, American Institute of Architects (AIA) chapters are taking steps toward reaching the 2030 Challenge targets by licensing and providing the professional development courses of the AIA+2030 Professional Series.
The Series is marketed to and attended by mid-executive level architectural and engineering professionals.
The influence of the Series reaches beyond those who attend local courses: it is presented nationally as “best practices” through conferences, media, and strategic partnerships.
Architecture 2030 manages the licensing for the Series to local AIA chapters and other organizations, distributes the program curriculum, facilitates communication around professional speakers and partners, and supports newly participating chapters with marketing and planning materials.
The program has three main aims:
- Impact climate change: give architects and design professionals the tools they need to design for the future of the planet
- Position architects: demonstrate the leadership of the architecture community on energy efficiency and carbon issues
- Support continued R&D: expand AIA+2030 reach and resources to fuel continual improvement
AIA’s architect members are serious about climate change solutions, and the AIA+2030 program is a significant step toward impacting GHG emissions in buildings across North America.
