August MCAP Webinar - Reducing Carbon Emissions from Buildings: A Systems Approach

August 16, 2022 Noon to 1:00 p.m. CT

We know that we can't solve the inter-connected issues of climate change and inequity by using the same tools that created those problems. Precipitate is developing new tools, processes, and approaches centered in equity and collaboration with like-minded partners. Join us on August 16 at Noon to hear from Elizabeth Turner and Imani Mosher as they discuss their work on projects at various scales, from passive energy efficiency for affordable housing to work on the Bemidji State University Climate Action and Resilience Plan as well as the City of Minneapolis Climate Equity Plan. Their unique, people-centered approach shifts the way we engage and ultimately design a carbon neutral world.


Imani Mosher is a recent graduate of St. Olaf College with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a concentration in Environmental Studies. She is passionate about the intersections of political science and environmental studies as they relate to climate justice. At Precipitate, she works on planning projects, sustainable design consulting, and climate justice advocacy and research. At St. Olaf, she was a co-founder of the Climate Justice Collective (CJC) an organization that drove the successful divestment campaign at the College and uplifted the movement to Stop Line3 among students.

Elizabeth Turner is an architect with a passion for finding synergies to create thriving, equitable communities that depend less on the purchase of energy, saving both operational costs and carbon emissions. She founded Precipitate in 2017 to explore emerging methods of holistically integrated design at the intersection of architecture, research, and education. She is a Certified Passive House Consultant through the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) and a 2020 recipient of the Energy News Network’s 40 under 40 recognizing her leadership in the transition to a clean energy economy. Elizabeth volunteers extensively with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Minnesota, advocating for public policy with a focus on equity and inclusion toward truly sustainable communities for all.
