What we stand for -seminaari

Kuvituskuva, jossa lukee "What we stand for"

Arch4Change järjestää englanninkielisen seminaarin "What we stand for – Towards sustainable and transformative ways of teaching, learning and practicing architecture".

ARCH4CHANGE project thinks that it is important to change the narrative: the majority in architecture and the building industry still think that we can engineer our way out of the climate crises (and barely focus on inequalities, the biodiversity crises or the fact that a solution is not sustainable unless it meets users needs and they adopt it and look after it).

So, the ARCH4CHANGE: WHAT WE STAND FOR event will both unfold briefly what the 3 year Erasmus+ Funded project ARCH4CHANGE is about, but through our speakers and the discussions, it is a call to action: we cannot be a carbon neutral or sustainable society without new ways of thinking and new values (e.g. more reuse and transformation, less building new; focusing on social infrastructure, non-humans and biodiversity and planetary health etc). This of course also translates in new ways of doing architecture (and by extension also questions what ‘architecture is’ and our role as architects and planners within it) (e.g. democratic processes, elevating collaboration with others, collective work, small interventions with big impact, ensuring a just transition).

Our invited speakers will share their different ways of working and thinking and what is needed for the radical sustainable transition that is needed in society and architecture.
