There is an essential role for the built environment disciplines to play in addressing the climate crisis and translating the goals of decarbonization, jobs, and justice into on-the-ground practices and built works. Through panel discussions with leading changemakers, this summit examines the intersection of policy, design, and advocacy to identify ways to accelerate individual and collective actions to effect change. The summit builds from the Green New Deal Superstudio, a year-long open call which attracted the participation of more than 3,000 students and practitioners in the built environment disciplines. Some 670 design and planning projects were submitted to give form to the goals of the movement-led vision, and a select set will be on display during the event.
