About Architects Declare 

Architects/Built Environment Declare is a voluntary community of +7000 Practices working globally to unite the profession in taking the necessary measures to tackle climate breakdown and biodiversity loss, two of the most serious issues of our time. The goal of the movement is to transform the built environment by 2030 so that it is planned, constructed, and operated within planetary boundaries, delivering positive social impact for all.

Architects Declare Ireland was set up in September 2019. Over 150 Irish architectural practices have now signed the declaration, expressing their commitment to the pledges of the declaration and willingness to work collaboratively to drive change across the industry.

We encourage all Irish architects to join the movement either by signing the declaration as a practice/registered architect or by joining our email list and future events to stay up to date with the discussion. 

More information on how to join, previous webinars and further resources to take action is available on the website.
