It's 2013! Prepare for the New Energy Future
AIA Seattle presents its fifth year
of AIA + 2030 Professional Series™ February 8 – November 8
Seattle—The Pacific Northwest is a leader in fighting climate change on a variety of fronts and our design and building community is no different. With proper tools and training, the architecture, engineering, and construction community can lead the way in making a difference in reducing greenhouse gas emissions cause by the built environment.
To impact the threat of climate change, Architecture 2030®, a non-partisan, national non-profit started by renowned architect Ed Mazria, has issued the 2030 Challenge® asking the global architecture and building community to reach the goal of carbon-neutral buildings by 2030.
AIA Seattle, a Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, is taking tangible steps toward reaching the goal of carbon-neutral buildings by 2030. One of those steps is producing the AIA+2030 Professional Series™, a 10-part series of intermediate-level professional development courses designed to provide specific ways to make our built environment energy-efficient. Architects engineers, construction professionals, facilities managers, policymakers are invited to register. The fifth season of the AIA+2030 Professional Education Series™ is produced by
AIA Seattle in partnership with the City of Seattle, Architecture 2030Ò and BetterBricks.
