In the lead up to the Human/Nature conference, Azure has launched a Call for Proposals for a series of one-hour, CEU-accredited workshops. Sessions will address the intersections of design and climate change and aim for solution-oriented strategies for mitigation, resilience and human flourishing. Our call for proposals closes at 5 pm EST on January 15, 2024.
Any practitioner or multi-disciplinary group with proven results and/or viable approaches to mitigating climate change through design. Projects we are interested in learning about include — but are not limited to — landscapes that mitigate the effects of rising temperatures and superstorms, housing projects and interiors that are both inclusive and sustainable, as well as product lines that are carbon neutral.
Solutions: We are looking for panel sessions that present proven solutions – and the processes through which the solutions were achieved. Sessions should also be geared toward presenting viable approaches to future problems that will arise from global climate change.
Multiple perspectives: Panel sessions should be as multidisciplinary as possible and include the voices of practitioners (architects, urban planners, designers, etc) alongside those of clients, community members, artists, activists, policy-makers and other relevant points of view.
Engagement: Panel sessions need to engage attendees in meaningful ways, whether they are shaped as panels with prompts for group discussion or hands-on workshops.
