On Sunday 15 November at 6pm hear from our international youth panel as they discuss the responsibility of the discipline of architecture in the age of climate crisis. This event is part of the first ever Open House Worldwide Festival, which will be live-streaming on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 November on the OHWW YouTube channel!

The panel was put together via an open call launched by Open House Dublin / Irish Architecture Foundation, who ran a series of mentoring workshops to prepare for the event. The panel consists of 15-18-year-olds from Ireland, USA and Austria. In their manifesto, themes include environmentally responsive materials, use of space and activism.
