ARB will not take action over architect convicted during climate protest


Real change doesn't happen unless you have a real voice, take real action, and mean it. Business as usual will not solve anything. Architects who are taking action to awake a network of professionals whose collective action contributes to 42% of UK carbon emissions realise words are not enough and should be applauded. We must now take action beyond the much-needed awareness and protesting, all architects need to look at the work they do and ask themselves this simple question: ‘Does this project undermine the RIBA Climate Challenge for net-zero whole life carbon buildings by 2030?’ If it does, then what are you doing about it? Are you actively informing your client what needs to change? If not, why not? And if they don’t agree then why are you not refusing the commission? Do to so will retain your professional integrity. In the future climate atrocities will no doubt be challenged in the courts. Save yourself future PI claims against design which undermines our climate, and take action now to protect our environment.
