COAC conference: Decarbonising Architecture
Decarbonisation is a decisive challenge facing our society, and architecture is no stranger to this: there will be no transition to a decarbonised society without an energy-efficient building stock. The conference, which will be held on 16 March 16 at 6 pm, wants to show how decarbonisation is changing the profession and the leadership role we as architects have to assume.
Through its participation in the event, the COAC hopes to continue working to make the profession a determining asset. It already began working towards this objective, and the Sustainable Development Goals, when it first organised the “Decarbonising Architecture” conference last November, which was well attended.
COAC members who are interested in visiting the trade show can register for free.
