Global Warming Webcast Offered At Cal Poly Pomona


An interactive webcast of The 2010 Imperative: Global Emergency Teach-In will be offered in the University Theatre on Feb. 20 from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. National organizers of the event estimate that 500,000 people will gather in similar fashions across the country.

The teach-in will address global warming and how it can be reduced with certain architectural and building design standards. The aim of the event is to assure that “ecological literacy” be incorporated into design education programs at colleges and universities.

The 2010 Imperative: Global Emergency Teach-In is presented by Architecture 2030, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing and reversing the effects of greenhouse gas emissions. The group focuses on reducing global warming through the architectural and building communities by establishing design and building standards that address fossil fuel and greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption performance standards.

The webcast will be broadcasted from the New York Academy of Sciences. For more information about the program visit: http://www.2010imperative.org/index.html.

Before the webcast, professors Kyle Brown and Pablo La Roche will give opening remarks to the attendants at Cal Poly Pomona. The event is free and open to the public.

The event is hosted by: the Green Team, College of Environmental Design, the Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies, Environmental Council, American Institute of Landscape Architecture Students, American Society of Landscape Architects, American Planning Student Association, Engineering Council, University Housing Services and Campus Forum.
