Carbon Positive Reset Global Teach-in Rallies Design Professionals Around a Commitment to Change

Chair of landscape architecture, civil engineering, and ecology, Michael Grove, ASLA, PLA has been invited by Architecture 2030 to speak at the Carbon Positive Reset Global Teach-in September 8-22. The event is free and open to the public.

Register here.

Architecture 2030 is a highly-esteemed non-profit focused on transforming the design, construction, and real estate industry from a major contributor of greenhouse gases to a central part of the solution. Their last global teach-in in 2007 brought together over 250,000 participants to set specific, achievable strategies to transform the built environment.

In 2020, the global teach-in will consist of “how-to” events in different global regions and will showcase the most effective building materials, construction methods, design tools, architecture and planning strategies, practices, and policies for dramatically and rapidly reducing the embodied and operational carbon emissions that meet the Paris Agreement.

Urban Agriculture and the Future of Cities

Grove will be discussing food systems and urban agriculture with Henry Gordon-Smith, CEO and Managing Director of Agritecture. Grove has recently presented his thoughts on urban agriculture and how cities can plan to be more resilient to future pandemics at the 2020 ULI Mainland China Summer Meeting via Zoom, with Boston 25 News, in ArchDaily, and in an interview with Flanelle Magazine.

The event will broadcast three live talks to accommodate global time zones. The first will be on September 8 at 3:15 p.m. Pacific time, the second will be on September 17 at 3:15 p.m. London time, and the third will be on September 22 at 5:15 p.m. Beijing time. Register here.
