This is an interactive web-cast, now in archive, about the transformation we need to be a part of as the collective design community, and the community as a whole. Find out more at www.2010imperative.org

Why?

Because time is running out.

Credible scientists give us 10 years to be well on our way toward global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions in order to avoid catastrophic climate change. Yet there are hundreds of coal-fired power plants currently on the drawing boards in the US. Seventy-six percent (76%) of the energy produced by these plants will go to operate buildings. As Architecture 2030 has shown, buildings are responsible for almost half (48%) of all energy consumption and GHG emissions annually; globally the percentage is even greater. Immediate action in the Building Sector, and a concerted global effort, are essential if we are to avoid hazardous climate change.
 

What?

The 2010 Imperative
Global Emergency Teach-in.


Tens of thousands of people from all over the world gathered here on February 20, 2007 to participate in the Global Emergency Teach-in conducted by Architecture 2030. During this interactive webcast, 2030 issued The 2030 Challenge and The 2010 Imperative, specific achievable strategies to transform the built environment. You can access these at www.2010imperative.org. These strategies are designed to immediately stabilize emissions in the Building Sector, and then reverse them to acceptable levels over the next ten years.

Who?

You.
You are in a position to make a difference.
