On 2 April, in association with the AJ’s RetroFirst campaign, AJ Summit will focus on putting sustainability into practice
AJ Summit 2020 will focus on how architects can respond to the climate emergency by embracing the whole-life carbon agenda and the principles of the circular economy. Taking place at London’s County Hall on the South Bank, AJ Summit will host a series of talks, panels and case studies highlighting how architects, clients and their project partners can collaborate to achieve positive design outcomes and work towards net-zero architecture.
Over 700 architecture practices have signed up to Architects Declare, acknowledging the enormous transformation required by the construction industry to tackle the looming threat of climate change. These practices have pledged to create an industry that has a more positive impact on the world around us. The AJ’s ongoing RetroFirst campaign offers a key way forward by championing the potential of existing buildings to help slash the industry’s carbon footprint. But what happens next? How can we realistically work towards this?
AJ Summit presents an exceptional opportunity for architects to learn how to incorporate climate-responsible working methods into their everyday practice.
