Attention all eco-minded architects, designers, and green building professionals!
Are you interested in charting the future of sound, sustainable living? Now is the perfect time to get involved - the C.L.E.A.R. Village Lab is looking for talented and progressive thinkers from every profession to come together at the Institute of Advanced Architecture in Barcelona from June 4th-6th 2009 to co-design a real-life eco-village. This exciting program offers the opportunity to collaborate with some of the brightest minds in sustainability to create a green development from the ground up that you could live, work, and relax in.
Founded by the C.L.E.A.R. Village Foundation, the Village Lab will convene 100 sustainability experts to conceive of a series of C.L.E.A.R. villages, and will then send them to a set of canvas locations to make their plans a reality. The foundation will then share the results and build a bundled knowledge package to support other villages around the world. This is an exciting opportunity to interact with the complex problem of climate change in rural in urban settings, since villages offer the perfect scale to find solutions to some of our greater societal challenges.
Every profession is invited to apply, from architects, to town planners, clean tech engineers, politicians, marketing consultants, and academics, so submit your registration today!
