About this session

Given the grimmest reality of irreversible climate change crisis that humanity is facing, why can’t we all work together to solve the crisis? What if we can identify key barriers and then reverse engineer to find steps to overcome barriers. We will review on two levels: personal and project scale.

This session will start with an attempt to identify climate change barriers and reverse engineer steps to move forward. We will continue with an exercise to make connections with your personal life and test those steps on your personal barriers. Lastly, we will review a case study of an affordable housing project, Othello Square in Seattle, to make connections on a project level to see how those steps played out.


  • Identify climate change key barriers.
  • Identify steps to overcome climate change barriers.
  • Use your personal experience to make connection with these steps.
  • Use an affordable housing case study to make connection with these steps.
