The 2°C Symposium is an opportunity to learn essential technologies, strategies and tools that address climate change at a critical time for our collective future.

Climate Change is a reality; it is imperative that we educate, develop innovative strategies, and implement changes to mitigate its advance.

Organized by COTE AIA|LA, 2°C is a unifying platform for the public, the architectural design community and the building industry to discuss and address the sustainability issues challenging our society today. 2°C will embrace current innovations in the industry and advance the dialogue occurring within these communities.

The symposium’s name references the Paris Climate Agreement which called for holding the increase in global average temperature to below 2°Celsius above pre-industrial levels in hopes of preventing irreversible and damaging climatic patterns.

COTE is dedicated to preserving the earth’s capacity to sustain a shared, high quality of life, and reflects the architecture profession’s commitment to provide healthy and safe environments for people, while preserving our natural resources. The committee’s directive is to lead and coordinate the profession’s involvement in environmental and energy-related issues and to promote the role of the architect as a leader in preserving and protecting the planet and its living systems.
