    AIA 2030 Committee and AIACC Committee on the Environment Present the Half Day Workshop:
    WE 310: The 2030 Commitment: Going for It, Targeting High-Performance Excellence
    Wednesday June 5, 2019: 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
    2019 AIA Conference on Architecture, Las Vegas, Nevada

    Workshop Description:
    This immersive workshop co-organized by the AIA 2030 Workgroup and the AIA California Council (AIACC) Committee on the Environment, will provide an overview of the 2030 Commitment program as well as the support for participating firms to use the 2030 Commitment as a transformative tool for the design of high-performance architecture. The workshop will provide a hands-on review of the commitment process: including the commitment letter, Sustainability Action Plan (SAP), basic modeling tools, and reporting using the online Design Data Exchange (DDx) tool. Four architecture firms, all with significant experience with the Commitment, will facilitate the workshop. We will discuss how firms are using it to measure their own portfolios, to improve their environmental leadership, and to provide a direct response to demand from local and state environmental goals. Three AIACC Cote firms will share how the 2030 Commitment has become an integral part of their firm culture, has provided the firms with design inspiration and has led to architectural excellence. Information will be presented to give attendees all the information they need to allow them to participate in this collective leadership effort of the AIA and to leverage the 2030 Commitment tools to move their firms toward higher environmental performance and architectural excellence.

    By the end of the session, firms participating will have completed the following:
    1. Sign the Commitment Letter
    2. Create and Adopt a Sustainability Action Plan
    3. Navigate the DDx and Report a Single Project (Real or Prototypical)
    4. Leverage DDx Reporting to Improve Design Processes

    Hi all, I am a member of the World Environment Center, a non-profit headquartered in DC who's purpose is to advance the SDGs globally through its member companies.  http://www.wec.org/  We are hosting a colloquium in conjunction with our Gold Medal Gala recognizing Ingersoll Rand for their commitment to the SDGs through their product lines. The 6 hour event is on May 16, 2019 in Washington DC and is focused on Innovation in the Build Environment.  I am hoping to attract a 2030 committed architect to speak for 20-30 minutes at the colloquium to the member firms of WEC on the AIA's 2030 program and how it is reshaping our industry or even perhaps your firm or organization.  If you are interested in doing this, you would be my guest for the entire day including the Gala.  The Gala is a grand event and always well attended so it is a fantastic networking opportunity and it is at the Newseum this year which will be open to our Gala guests that evening.  Please let know or give me a call if you are interested in this opportunity. 

    Many thanks, John
