The webinar “Future Perspectives - How do we design for a changing climate?” was held in the first week of February. During the week, 14 influential speakers from academia and practice were joined by a growing number of attendees from 50 countries.
Each day, the webinar presented an inspiring approach to sustainable architecture followed by an open discussion.
With an avg. of 350 daily attendees, it became clear that platforms like this are needed - places to share and question potentials and challenges that architects face when working with sustainability.
A recurring topic “the future role of the architect in climate emergency” showed practitioners, academics, and students' willingness to go beyond standard practices and get involved in politics and interdisciplinary partnerships to reach the goals we have failed so far.

How do we design for a changing climate?
"Around 50 years ago, it was clear that humanity’s consumption of resources began to exceed what the Earth could produce and renew in a year, which means, since the 1970s we have been consuming and polluting the environment more than it can recover naturally."
