For the first time, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) is sending architects to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), taking place in Glasgow, Scotland from October 31–November 12, 2021.

Mike Davis FAIA, 2013 BSA President and AIA Government Advocacy Committee Chair will be joining AIA 2021 President Peter Exley FAIA; Julie Hiromoto FAIA, COTE 2020 Advisory Group Chair; and Dr. Mark Breeze AIA, AIA UK Sustainability Chair at the conference.

According to Building Design + Construction Network, "AIA’s focus at COP26 will be establishing new partnerships with policymakers and industry partners to ensure that we are aggressively (and jointly) moving the needle toward zero emissions."
