AIA Seattle Climate Action Course #aeck-SD117: Just Transition - Building Equity, Now!
Presented by: Rico Quirindongo, AIA, Interim Director, Seattle Office of Planning and Community Development, and Carlton Ely, Regional Equity Initiative Manager for the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission
AIA/CES (HSW) Learning Units: 1.75 Hours
Course release date: July, 2021.
In this passionate keynote, Carlton Eley, Regional Equity Initiative Manager for the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, explores the groundswell of activity that is compelling communities to "find their true North." He explores equitable development as an approach for meeting the needs of underserved communities through projects, programs, and/or policies that reduce disparities while fostering places that are healthy, vibrant and diverse. As Mr. Eley explains, the equity challenge in the built environment rises above false choices, encourages curiosity and requires design professionals, planners, local governments and the public to get comfortable being uncomfortable.
Mr. Eley is introduced by Rico Quirindongo, AIA, Seattle Office of Planning and Community Development, who emphasizes how we must keep equity, community health, economic stability, and social context in mind as we transition to a more sustainable built environment.
