AIA Akron members and guests are invited to our September Chapter Meeting, titled “Global Forestry 101”, by Grace Jeffers on September 13th at 5:30 pm. The meeting will be held in the Cene Lecture Hall at The College of Architecture & Environmental Design Building at Kent State University, and is open to the public. Those who register are invited to Treno for dinner after the presentation.
Lecture Description:
The world is losing its forests at such an alarming rate we now have global laws in place to protect our remaining woodlands. This lecture guides designers through the dense undergrowth involved in protecting forests. Designers will learn about endangered trees, their illegal logging, and how to identify the origin of wood before they specify. Global Forestry 101 also shows how to identify illegally obtained wood and reviews legal alternatives that protect forests and satisfies client needs. Recent global laws are very serious, and the lecture explores stark examples for design professionals to note so that they can protect their practices.
