Azure Human/Nature Conference Call for proposals gif

Taking place November 14 and 15, 2024, in Toronto, Azure’s Human/Nature conference will bring together architects, urbanists, designers and other innovators – as well as environmentalists, activists and business leaders – to motivate greater collaboration and share proven approaches to designing, manufacturing, planning and building.

Download Our Call For Proposals

In the lead up to the Human/Nature conference, Azure has launched a Call for Proposals for a series of one-hour, CEU-accredited workshops. Sessions will address the intersections of design and climate change and aim for solution-oriented strategies for mitigation, resilience and human flourishing. Our call for proposals closes at 5 pm EST on January 15, 2024 has been extended until 10 pm EST on January 18, 2024!

WHO SHOULD SUBMIT?

Any practitioner or multi-disciplinary group with proven results and/or viable approaches to mitigating climate change through design. Projects we are interested in learning about include — but are not limited to — landscapes that mitigate the effects of rising temperatures and superstorms, housing projects and interiors that are both inclusive and sustainable, as well as product lines that are carbon neutral.

WHAT MAKES A GREAT CONFERENCE PROPOSAL?

Solutions: We are looking for panel sessions that present proven solutions – and the processes through which the solutions were achieved. Sessions should also be geared toward presenting viable approaches to future problems that will arise from global climate change.

Multiple perspectives: Panel sessions should be as multidisciplinary as possible and include the voices of practitioners (architects, urban planners, designers, etc) alongside those of clients, community members, artists, activists, policy-makers and other relevant points of view.

Engagement: Panel sessions need to engage attendees in meaningful ways, whether they are shaped as panels with prompts for group discussion or hands-on workshops.

More information about the conference is available here. You can also download the Human/Nature Call for Proposals at this link. Have questions? Feel free to get in touch with us at conference@azureonline.com.
