The AIA+2030 Goal:
The American Institute of Architects serves as the voice of the architecture profession and the resource for our members in service to society. AIA Dallas provides our architectural community with resources and relationships to make a difference through design. Building are an important part of the climate change solution. Training architects and engineers to significantly reduce the energy use of their buildings is a critical step on the path towards energy independence and climate change reduction. AIA’s architect members are serious about climate change solutions. The Dallas AIA+2030 program is a significant step toward impacting GHG emissions in buildings with proven success in the Seattle area.
What Makes This Program Unique?
National leadership. This is the first program in the nation that teaches the architectural profession specific ways to reduce carbon emissions. AIA Dallas and our series sponsors
Specific tools. Many talk about pursuing ‘sustainability’ and ‘green’ practices, but it is hard to distinguish talk from action. The AIA+2030 Professional Education Series™ provides tools, not just theory. These tools have been shown to make a direct impact and the more architects are trained to do this work; the closer we are to reducing the impact of climate change.
“Green collar” jobs. There is often a divide, real or perceived, between environmentally-minded solutions and the economy. This program makes a direct link to how a profession can make a positive impact on the most significant environmental challenge we face today. By focusing on how a profession can make a difference beyond actions of individuals, we can reach our goal much faster while boosting the economy.
