The Green Building Learning Zone brings together architects, designers, builders, suppliers, educators, non-profits and consultants from the green building world who are all deeply committed to creating sustainable buildings and educating the public about their importance.
Our vision of a sustainable building is:
a) Affordable to build, buy and operate
b) Very energy efficient
c) Made with materials that have low embodied carbon and minimal waste
d) Healthy, comfortable and promotes the well-being of the occupants
e) Resilient, beautiful, accessible, connected to community
Our first event took place March 22-24, 2019 at the Green Living Show. With more than 40 presentations, a sample table of green building materials, and a shared library of green building books, we explored a broad variety of topics from building science, to embodied carbon and energy, to natural building, to health and well-being in the built environment, and more. It was wonderful to see so many of you come by the booth and we look forward to staying connected. See the slideshow we had running during the show here.
