About this Event

** To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have made changes our Earth Day plans.**

Come together and celebrate Earth Day from home with an interactive webinar presented by the R.W. Kern Center and NESEA! Join us to talk embodied carbon, systems thinking, and climate justice with Jacob Deva Racusin and Ace McArleton of New Frameworks Design & Build.

The energy we spend constructing and operating buildings makes up a big portion of global carbon emissions. But buildings can become part of the climate crisis solution! We’ll cover the major carbon emissions associated with building, how we can use systems thinking and creative material solutions to lower these emissions (or even take them negative!), and how carbon-smart building can advance climate justice. Bring your curiosity and questions to find out how you can be part of this climate solution.

Register for free on Eventbrite; we’ll post the Zoom link to participate in the next few weeks. In the meantime, check out the R.W. Kern Center website for more info on climate impacts of the built environment, and sign up for brief monthly RWKC updates.
