The 17 UN SDG's will be split into six different panels, with various subjects and framing. Each panel focuses on an overarching challenge faced by architecture in the 21st century.
the six panels
Design for Climate Adaptation
Architecture faces a grave challenge in a world struck by climate change. The built environment must adapt to changing weather patterns, higher temperatures and flooding.
Design for Rethinking Resources
Resources are getting scarcer, and architects need to address this issue. By using novel materials and recycling on a much greater scale, architecture can change its approach to resources.
Design for Resilient Communities
Communities are people, and people create communities. Architects can positively impact the lives of millions, even billions, by building for the future, and creating communities that last.
Design for Health
Healthy living takes place in healthy environments, and architects can help improve public health through careful planning, building and consideration.
Design for Inclusivity
A sustainable world is one with room and consideration for all people. Architects must design with inclusivity in mind, and take care to understand the needs of the many different people that inhabit the globe.
Design for Partnerships of Change
Architects must foster partnerships, and work across many different professions and skills to create a sustainable and inclusive future.
