Role for RSUA members in Climate Action Day

RSUA is encouraging all members to take a positive action on Friday and to share their action on social media using #ClimateActionNI.

Here are some examples of what you can do:

  1. Tell us what actions you think should be taken in relation to our built environment regarding climate change. These could be actions for anyone, for example government, local councils, architects etc. Tell us here.
  2. Calculate your environmental footprint for yourself Individual footprint or for your business Collective SME footprint
  3. Take action as an individual and as an architect. Here are some ideas:
    • Consider the sustainability of a product you are specifying
    • Don’t eat meat this Friday
    • Travel more sustainably this Friday (walk, cycle, public transport)
    • Attend a local strike/demonstration
