Leveraging Engineering Design: Advancing Equity in High-Performance Buildings

Zoom
4:00 p.m.

Low-income households disproportionately bear the impacts of unhealthy buildings, unhealthy in that they are vulnerable to disaster and use energy inefficiently, among other deficiencies. Unsurprisingly, these households are also underrepresented in the design and construction of sustainable, healthy buildings. “Black Lives Matter” protests have brought to light poor housing and other social issues as longstanding manifestations of racial and systemic inequalities. We will not succeed in our efforts to attain sustainable, resilient communities if we do not address existing social injustice. The Global Building Network is developing a just, equitable, and inclusive approach to building design and construction. It’s an effort to consider the holistic performance of buildings in culturally, economically, and politically diverse communities around the world.
