A Pecha-Kucha style presentation of twelve ESALA staff and students projects which respond to the climate crisis.

About this event

ESALA Climate Action is a student and staff group at the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture aiming to tackle the Climate Emergency in our pedagogy, research, and community practices.

To coincide with the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, ESALA Climate Action has released a folded poster and website ( identifying the key areas for action we are committed to addressing as a School, and highlighting some of ESALA’s ongoing research and teaching that pertain to the impacts of the built environment on climate change.

You are invited to join us for a Pecha-Kucha style presentation of twelve ESALA staff and students projects which respond in multi-faceted ways to our climate emergency context. The presentations will be at SpACE but will be streamed online at the same time. Separate booking links are provided. 


What’s it about?

As we increasingly see, climate change will be the horizon against which our lives, and the lives of future generations, will play out. Engaging and informing the public about this topic, non in an abstract or general way, but by suggesting specific ways of approaching or understanding them, is essential. We hope that these events will contribute to this.
