The calendar claims Autumnal Equinox but it sure feels like mid summer.
As the effects of Climate Change continue to become more and more evident, AIA New Jersey is proud to partner with AIA National on the Big Move toward Environmental Stewardship. The September 13th, 2019 ratification of the resolution introduced at the 2019 Conference on Architecture formalizes the intentions of the institute to position the architectural profession as key leaders for climate action. It outlines three key areas: declare an urgent climate imperative for carbon reduction; transform the day-to-day built practice of architects to achieve a zero-carbon, equitable, resilient and healthy built environment; and leverage support of peers, clients, policy makers, and the public at large.

On the regional front, on June 21, 2019, at their East Coast Green Conference at The Willow School in Gladstone, NJ, Judith Donnelly, AIA, President of the American Institute of Architects New Jersey Chapter (AIANJ) pledged AIA New Jersey’s support of Governor Murphy’s announcement that NJ will return to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

AIA New Jersey will continue to prioritize the integration of climate action into our members’ practices and therefore into our communities throughout New Jersey.
