Virtual Event

presented by Design for Freedom by Grace Farms and Pratt Institute

This panel will explore how several industries are farther along in ensuring ethically sourced materials and labor practices than the construction and design industry and what can we learn from them.

How have these sectors successfully added humanitarian criterion to business models by investing in ethically sourced materials to reduce risk and increase long term returns? How can we apply these lessons as we seek to build slave-free buildings?

 

Hosted by:

Chelsea Thatcher, co-editor of Design for Freedom report and Creative Director and Chief Marketing Officer | Grace Farms Foundation

Tulay Atak, Associate Professor Adjunct at the School of Architecture | Pratt Institute

 

Webinar Contributors

Carolyn Shafer, Director of Sustainability for Academic Affairs | Pratt Sustainability Center 

Tara St. James, Founder and Designer | Study NY

Julie Klinger, Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography and Spatial Sciences | University of Delaware

Kiel Moe, Professor and Gerald Staff Chair of Architecture | McGill University

 

Webinar attendants can receive AIA CES credits, administered by the School of Continuing and Professional Studies at Pratt Institute.

 

Watch the first webinar in our series, Innovative Tools in the Movement Toward Slave-Free Buildings.
