Buildings Day at the COP21 UN Climate Change Conference

Today marked the first time ever at UN climate change conferences that a day was devoted specifically to the building sector.

As an ‘initiating organization’ of Buildings Day (along with other groups including the French government and the United Nations Environment Programme), Architecture 2030 helped plan the agenda for the day, and Architecture 2030 Founder Edward Mazria delivered a key message with an opening presentation titled “The 2 Degree Path for the Building Sector”.
