Over the last three weeks we have explored the context of the climate crisis, learnt about the key carbon related concepts, and been inspired by some cool case studies. Now, we are looking at how we can use all of this knowledge to make a change.

We will be taking a look at the following:

  • What does changemaking look like?
  • Where should we focus our attention for most effective change?
  • How are businesses making change?
  • How are governments making change?
  • How is society making a change?
  • How can YOU make a change?

These questions will all be explored in relation to reducing carbon emissions in the built environment. The readings will be filled with a variety of exciting case studies of change being made in reality. We hope that you find this week inspiring and come away with a sense of hope about what is possible!

We are really excited to see what interesting solutions you come up with.
