RISING21 is a practical symposium presented by the AIA New Orleans 2030 Committee.

A 2-day Virtual event— 4 hours per day on Thursday and Friday November 11-12— will cover a range of pressing climate-change issues and cutting-edge solutions including:

  • Overview of energy efficiency practices, timeline and targets, net-zero design practices, and material considerations.
  • Cross-disciplinary working groups
  • Case Studies
  • Introduction of emerging tools that test, measure and verify design performance

We invite architects, MEP professionals and all city/urban planners to embrace these challenges and seek solutions through the RISING21 symposium.

We’re winning slowly. How do we win faster?
Global poverty is shrinking, life expectancy is rising, more people have access to education and
health care than ever before, and carbon emissions in many countries are falling. We’re winning. But climate change and species loss is accelerating. We have to bring about the transformation to a sustainable world faster–and architects are in a surprisingly powerful place, able to nudge the aim of the giant fire hose of money spent each year on the built environment in ways that
make the world more healthy and more just, while drastically lowering Carbon emissions. Let’s go!
