Let us Talk ! share experience
Push ‘’open’’ doors and closed minds.
Since 1972, through bestllings like « The Limit to Growth », up till the Paris Summit, authors and scientists have been demonstrating that economy and human population are unlikely to grow beyond the end of the 21th century.
If carbon emissions keep increasing, global warming will attend 5° by the end of the century which will result to the destruction of 95% of the planet species in 2070. That’s only part of the reasons why mind-sets must shift.
Heading towards such a chaotic future was not something spontaneous but a continuous series of nature degradation that we need to cut off. As we can spot, our planet is actually facing many challenges: to a hazy nebula due to the effects of climate change, health and security crises are revealing our poor resource management which suffocates us!
We seem to converge to a point of no return, where uncertainty about the quality of life the next day arises with every sleep, and freedom more than ever “seems” to be held hostage by our inability to regain consciousness. For two centuries we ran linearly toward resources, due to a carbon based economy. With the increasing demography; It is necessary before 2050, to have anticipated and prepared the paradigms of a resilient built environment.
Green buildings, or green watching?
It’s time to choose!!
Post carbon is not a new term and must stop to be a continuous trend. Unlike many other initiatives, focusing on waste management, transport, energy, nutrition…, we believe there is a hope beyond the economic growth boosted by Carbon emissions, and that a sustainable built environment is the way we must go toward radical conversion, with pragmatism attached to the urgency and a survivalist essence tending to idealism.
Just as a recall…
Archi-Talk is a round-table type of international conference that focuses on innovative conceptual and / or pragmatic profiles, initiatives and practices – where design is used to solve the problem. It is conceived as a launching pad for an annual series of online discussions on well reference and trendy topics borrowed from climatic and environmental emergencies in the objective through the concept « save by design » is to participate in the conceptualisation of the world of tomorrow.
we believe in dialogue and the ability of the next generation to learn from such opportunities to take responsibility for their future … !
