The AIA Colorado Committee on the Environment (COTE) invites you to join us for our 2016 lunch-time learning series. Each session includes an hour-long video of the AIAU 2030 series and half-hour discussion plus Q&A with a local expert.

Buildings are the largest consumer of energy and producer of greenhouse gas emissions. Architecture 2030 was founded in 2002 by Edward Mazria with the goal of helping architects design buildings that are carbon neutral by the year 2030.  Each session in this series is setup to provide attendees with the tools, methods, and resources they need to meet the 2030 targets.
