A facinating project with an impresive launch...
Tens of thousands of people from all over the world gathered here on February 20, 2007 to participate in the Global Emergency Teach-in conducted by Architecture 2030. During this interactive webcast, 2030 issued The 2030 Challenge and The 2010 Imperative, specific achievable strategies to transform the built environment. These strategies are designed to immediately stabilize emissions in the Building Sector, and then reverse them to acceptable levels over the next ten years.
Presentations at the launch where given by James Hansen, head of NASA's Goddard Space Insitute; one of the worlds leading atmospheric modeling centres. Also by Edward Mazria, founder of Architechture 2030 and Chris Luebkeman senior fellow of the Design Futures Council.
