On Monday, March 16th, Design Director Yasemin Kologlu will speak at the fourth annual EQUINOX: UN SDGs symposium at Kennesaw State University. The event focuses on the 17 interconnected United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to catalyze multidisciplinary partnership and scholarship on sustainability. This year's theme centers on the intersections of good health and well-being, and climate action.
As the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS) invited speaker, Kologlu will lead a presentation titled "Designing for the Well-being of Our Planet and Our People." She will discuss the challenges facing the world today, and the immediate and innovative design solutions needed to address such uniquely complex problems. With the built environment contributing approximately 30 to 40 percent of global CO2 emissions, the building industry's collective action towards a net-zero carbon future is more crucial than ever. Kologlu will examine the role of architects in positively shaping the future of the planet and its inhabitants, and how these conditions can inform designs and processes.
Following her presentation, Kologlu will participate in a closing moderated panel discussion.
