There has been significant spotlight on leadership during this disaster. Out of a state of helplessness, there have been impressive displays of those taking action in their own ways, and leading by example.
One such group has been @architectsdeclare
As a group, Architects Declare are banding together to strengthen the voice of an industry demanding change, however, they are also leading that called-for change from the home-front.
Their collective declaration at the start of this year, in response to the environmental devastation we have witnesses over the bushfire season, is leadership by example. Hopefully their meaningful and well set-out steps towards lowering the carbon emissions of their businesses will inspire others to follow their footsteps. To all those practices involved in this initiative: well done.
We encourage everyone to head over to the pages of participating architecture practices - a non-exhaustive list tagged in comments.

Like everyone, our hearts are broken for Australia right now, however we continue to be encouraged by the leadership, generosity, empathy and activism shown by Australian and global communities.
Last month, a group of committed architects met as part of the Architects Declare, Architects Act movement. We worked collaboratively through ideas on how to move forward to create architecture and urbanism that has a more positive impact on the world around us. There’s never been a better time than now to realise these ideas.
We have big plans for 2020 and look forward to sharing them with you. We urge you to join us. 📷Dale Appleton, DELWP #architectsdeclare #architectsact #carbonneutral #climatechange #bushfirecrisis #australia
