AEC professionals are working on design and policy changes to rapidly eliminate carbon emissions from our built environment. What are the upstream and downstream impacts of these changes on jobs, housing affordability, health and communities? What additional considerations and voices should be brought into our decision-making processes? How can we push aggressively towards our climate goals while simultaneously supporting the call for justice and human rights that 2020 has reminded us to answer? Considering the transitions toward 1) the electrification of everything, 2) sustainable material sourcing and 3) building more resilient frontline communities, this year’s thought leadership summit will help us identify and address the impacts and opportunities those transitions have on our most vulnerable communities.
