Future of Architecture Practice, Today: Workshop ACAN

Lecture + workshop about the climate and biodiverity emergency, architecture’s part in it and how YOU can get involved to make a difference.

ACAN formed in London over the summer of 2019, in this talk we will take you through how ACAN was conceived, founded and is expanding. We will explain the principles and activities fundamental to the network, talk through some of the actions we have taken and explain the changes we are trying to bring about. We will discuss how to build effective campaigns and make an inclusive network of engaged individuals working collaboratively to address the climate and biodiversity crises.

There will be a short Q&A session before we divide the audience into groups. With a facilitator from ACAN you will be asked to discuss what issues affect your region and areas of expertise, how these could be overcome and what would be needed to make changes for the better.

This will not be the a run of the mill lecture and audience participation will be vital! Don’t be afraid, we will create a fun, inclusive forum for people to speak their mind and meet others who share their concerns. The movement is building and we want you all to be a part of it.
