Climate strike backed by RIBA president and UK Green Building Council


Personally, not being an Architect, I would prefer for people to spend any such day in constructive debate and action. While a strike may draw some very brief attention to the role of architects, it is going to cause disruption and just alienate some of the people who need convincing. In the same way that I would have preferred pupils to spend recent school "strike" day(s) contacting their local MP or others or just in constructive debate, I think professionals should instead hold seminars and workshops about positive action for future projects and to which their clients could be invited. Nowadays too many frustrated people seem to be shouting for attention in the media for whatever their cause is and the media feeds on this.
