Sustainability: An Inclusive Interpretation

Committee on the Environment Forum

Sustainability: An Inclusive Interpretation
Presented by Liz Ogbu of Public Architecture. Ms. Ogbu's presentation will explain the notion of social justice and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. Too often people view sustainability only in its environmental context, but social sustainability is an equally critical component of ensuring healthy and viable communities.

Through its design projects and pro bono initiative, the 1% Solution, Public Architecture champions both environmental and social sustainability. Projects and ideas presented will focus on the ways in which this more inclusive view of sustainability can have a tremendously positive impact on the work of the design professions and the people their work affects.

Time: Noon-1:30pm
Location: AIA East Bay Chapter Office, 1405 Clay Street, Oakland
Cost: None, RSVPs not necessary
