CARBON + PEOPLE
2020 AIA/ACSA Intersections Research Conference: CARBON
This conversation will orient people and communities at the center of the climate and carbon conversation and highlight the varied ways people are impacted by climate changes and rising greenhouse gases, from air quality issues, to water pollution and flooding, to political advocacy. Catherine Flowers will tell her personal story of her evolution of an activist, from country girl to student civil rights organizer to environmental justice champion.
- Understand how climate change impacts low-income communities disproportionately.
- Learn how air quality and water pollution can be minimized with simple measures for low incoming housing.
- Discover how to use architecture skills to improve environmental justice for under-served communities.
- Gain knowledge of how rural communities suffer unjustly and can be improved when building projects are designed using modest sustainable measures.
