On Tuesday 5th October 2021, from 4PM to 6PM, the first online webinar of Comunità Resilienti “Architecture and Mitigation” will be held within the framework of the 17th Venice International Architecture Exhibition. The event is organized in collaboration with The Plan and Iris Ceramica Group is the Main Sponsor.
Residential buildings, industrial emissions and transport-related emissions are some of the biggest causes of the environmental crisis.
In this context, the architect has a key role in the mitigation of causes of climate change and in the related reduction of CO2 emissions. Architectural design and urban planning are areas on which we can intervene to achieve a meaningful mitigation.
The webinar will involve some of the main international experts and participants will have the possibility to intervene during the Q&A moment.
