|CAFOD Social area|
Technology provides us with an opportunity to make step changes to reduce our energy consumption regardless of how it is generated, but we fill the void created with new consumables, wastefully condition the empty space, or ultimately get somebody else to offset the problem! It’s being used to improve our standard of living, rather than offering the savings that can, and need, to be divided globally.
The contrast of slum and luxury in Mumbai
Our recent building for the charity CAFOD seeks to bridge this equality divide - economically, socially and environmentally. The occupants have to work with their building and make some sacrifices, but this doesn’t reduce the quality of their working life, or more importantly of those that the charity serves. In fact this humble building provides greater social space than its more illustrious and highly funded peers. Is this the level we should be targeting as a profession?
