The Committee on the Environment is to accelerate the Minnesota architecture community’s implementation of sustainable design, and to shape and advocate for policies that meet the urgent need for climate action, environmental justice, and a regenerative future. COTE serves as the community and voice on behalf of AIA architects regarding sustainable design and building science and performance. Join us to:
- Learn how to speak to legislators and help shape AIA Minnesota’s climate action-oriented policy work;
- Expand your skills in sustainable design and environmental justice;
- Strengthen and learn from our network of sustainable design subject matter experts; and
- Share our vision of a sustainable future with clients and the public.
Join the COTE mailing list to get 1-2 emails per month with information on monthly meetings and upcoming events.
