Beyond the Building: Advocacy & Sustainability
Each individual green building is part of a larger attempt to find a truly sustainable built environment. As building professionals, we understand that a more sustainable future involves stakeholders beyond the building process. During this moderated panel, we will hear from architects and activists about the policy challenges at all levels of government, and about how the design & construction community can respond and get involved with this important work.
If you want to learn more about how to apply your passion for sustainability outside of the project environment, this is the event for you.
