The RIAS Sustainability Working Group have recently been working on a proposal to potentially create a Technical Aid Incubator that has a Climate Emergency response at it’s heart. The main purpose would be two-fold: firstly, the incubator would be of benefit to any graduates who feel they are leaving tertiary education with a gap in their knowledge or understanding of wider sustainability issues, and secondly it would support currently unemployed practitioners who feel there is a gap in their skills set in this field.
If successful this Incubator could be an opportunity to provide mass up-skilling of many people within the design fields of the construction industry.
In the first instance the Sustainability Working Group are looking for feedback on current training opportunities to allow for identification of any gaps or barriers that people are experiencing.
Please get in touch if you want to get involved.
