What do you do to help fight climate change?

In this second video in the series on climate change, Marina Huissoon asks and answers the question – What do you do to mitigate the effects of climate change? It’s an important dialogue to initiate and continue as it affects us globally and individually and requires action at both levels to have any beneficial effect.

Marina directs her ideas towards planners, builders and homeowners. Something as simple as the appropriate placement and number of windows in a structure can both save on heating and cooling in all seasons and doesn’t add to project costs.

Creating a more sustainable built environment involves many disciplines and sectors from better land use planning, and increased development of passive energy sources to rethinking transportation systems. The job of designers is to constantly evolve innovative solutions in an effort to challenge all players in the built environment to make progress toward greater sustainability.
