Queen’s University Belfast School of Architecture declares Climate Emergency (via Architecture at Queen’s)

In response to the global ecological crisis, the School of Architecture at Queen’s University Belfast is declaring a climate emergency.  In order to empower our students and staff to address the enormity of this challenge, we will integrate climate action into every module starting immediately in the 2019–2020 academic year.  In confronting these serious challenges head on, we will build on our long–standing facility to create meaningful and inspirational spaces.

Likewise, we will interrogate our teaching and research practices to ensure we are doing the least possible damage while conducting teaching, research and outreach in our wider community.

Queen’s Architecture is fortunate to have a significant body of local, national and internationally–based staff and students, alumni and wider family including employers, external examiners, guest critics and other critical friends to help us address the urgent need to find solutions to these imminent threats.

We will launch our committed intent on Monday 23 September 2019 in Ashby 01/005 17.00–18.00 with staff and students.
