Driving Equity Now | Just Transition: Upstream and Downstream Impacts of Decarbonization
Join us for Carlton Eley's Driving Equity Now, the closing keynote of AIA Seattle's 2021 (Virtual) Climate Leadership Summit.
AIA Seattle presents Just Transition: Upstream and Downstream Impacts of Decarbonization. Join us online, May 17-19, 2021 for AIA Seattle’s 2021 (Virtual) Climate Leadership Summit exploring the equity and social justice impacts of a transition to clean energy sources, materials, and processes. The Summit will conclude with keynote Carlton Eley’s presentation Driving Equity Now.
Researchers and advocates; stewards of the built environment; and proponents for sustainability are coming to realize that finding creative ways to encourage equitable development does not shift attention from making communities better. Instead, it results in better community outcomes, especially for underserved populations and vulnerable groups. This keynote will explore the groundswell of activity that is compelling communities to ‘find their true North’ by ensuring everyone has a safe and healthy environment in which to live, work, and play. In an era of rapid change, there is unparalleled demand and urgency from the public, planners, and local governments for policies, programs, and practices that will advance social equity by design.
