RSUA establishes Climate Emergency Committee


To help radically reduce our built environment’s contribution to climate change and to help prepare for the impacts of climate change on Northern Ireland, RSUA has formed a Climate Emergency Committee. The inaugural meeting will take place at 12:30pm on Tuesday 17 September 2019.

The committee will bring forward to sets of actions that should be taken in relation to our built environment, both in terms of reducing the impact of climate change and preparedness for the effects of climate change on Northern Ireland.

The committee is tasked with producing detailed RSUA position papers on addressing climate change through the design of Northern Ireland’s built environment as well as preparing responses to relevant consultations.  More widely, the committee will engage across local and regional government, universities and industry bodies on climate change as it relates to the built environment.  It will also propose opportunities for learning within architecture in relation to climate change through training events, building tours and other resources.
