The Climate Change Colloquium comes to be.

Climate change has become a global phenomenon that is forcing responses from all countries, cultures and professional disciplines. It is emerging to be much like the danger AIDS is to mankind only much bigger as it stands to affect all life. As disciplines like the applied sciences and the industry start to respond to the potential threats to biodiversity and increasing global warming, individuals could contribute much through dialogue and design at a grass roots level.

The Climate Change Colloquium is a collaborative public platform for the development and discussions of ideas that have the potential to address climate change. Within the CCC, ideas come together to form both new stand-alone concepts and also ‘grafts’ on existing products, services and technologies which would make them potentially more viable in addressing climate change. As a diverse and widespread forum of individuals the CCC is exceptionally positioned to serve as a creative platform to address climate change.

CCC was initiated by architects who believed that as a profession they understood the implications of the built environment and were uniquely capable to act as catalysts while bridging diverse disciplines. CCC is also driven by concerned and innovative individuals with a pragmatic bent of mind and positive attitudes who believe that to be most effective climate change should be addressed ‘bottom-up’. The CCC connects with other institutions and industries actively addressing climate change and shares with them the ideas it has developed so they may be taken up by interested parties who have the means and resources to implement them. In return, support from organizations and individuals willing to support the CCC is very welcome.
