Scientific evidence suggests that we have 10 years to significantly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions in order to avoid catastrophic climate change. Fifty percent of greenhouse gas emissions can be traced to buildings. With proper tools and training, architects can make a significant difference. Architecture 2030®, a non-partisan, national not-for-profit started by renowned architect Ed Mazria, AIA, issued the 2030 Challenge® that asks the global architecture and building community to reach the goal of carbon-neutral buildings by 2030. Join us for this special presentation at HKS, as we spend an evening with Ed Mazria.
