Committee on the Environment
Brackenridge park had an Earth Day event on April 20th which included volunteers to help clean up the park, plant new flower beds, mulch etc. Along with this volunteer effort, Brackenridge Conservancy asked 12 volunteers from the COTE Committee to help clean up the existing pump house. To continue the day’s events the COTE committee along with Brackenridge conservancy decided to have the our annual spring COTE Cinema in the park. We had a good turnout for our first viewing at this location. About 50 persons came with their families, and we had two food trucks. Our Screening this spring was “Deep Green: Solutions to Stop Global Warming Now”. We hope to make this an annual Earth Day event at Brackenridge Park.
Our Sponsors included:
Brackenridge Park Conservancy
City parks & Recreation Department
Guy W. Chipman Construction
AIA National has written a mission statement for all COTE committees. Locally, we strive to advance, involve, and educate the building community and the public on best design practices and their effects on the environment. Our goal as a group is to do this through the following:
• Organize to affect local public policy, stressing the importance of high-efficient buildings, responsible use of resources, and responsiveness to regional environmental and building issues
• Produce educational and informative materials that assist in decision making of policy, design, and lifestyle choices
• Hold local events for education and discussion revolving around sustainable design and practice
• Engage architects in issues relating to environmental preservation and provide a resource to encourage environmentally sound design and planning.
Please join us for our monthly meetings at noon on the first Tuesday of each month at the Center for Architecture. Check out our Facebook page for more information!
Architects and Non-Architects are all welcome!
Watch the LIVE FEED at 11:30 AM on Friday, September 21st!
