From October 22-26, Cannon Design will host a prominent and diverse group of speakers to present at the Chicago firm’s 11th Annual Environmental Awareness Week.

The event is a compilation of daily presentations, broadcast digitally for Cannon Design's offices across the globe, about sustainable ideas that can/will impact our daily lives. Speakers include:

  • Cliff Majersik, Executive Director for the Institute for Market Transformation, responsible for research on building performance policy, energy codes, energy efficiency finance and green leasing.
  • Charles Mann, Author of 1491 & 1493 (which examine how “the Columbian Exchange” marked the beginning of globalization and transformed China, Europe and much of the Americas) and regular correspondent for The Atlantic Monthly, Science and Wired.
  • T. Luke Young, Architecture for Humanity, the organization which brings design, construction and development services where they are most critically needed.
  • Ed Mazria, Founder of Architecture 2030, which has helped reshape national and international dialogue on climate change to incorporate building design and the “Building Sector.”

Regional events will also be held at each of Cannon Design's 15 offices on the 26th.
