LEED® 255 Climate Adaptation & the Built Environment

My good friends at the Connecticut chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) wanted me to help plug a LEED® program they are hosting next week. If you are an architect, engineer, interior designer, construction manager or just a person who’s interested in green building, this program might be for you and it’s way affordable.

Green building is widely-recognized as valuable strategy to mitigate climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, scientific evidence clearly suggests that the Earth’s climate will continue to change even under the most aggressive emission reduction scenarios. The decisions we make about how to design, build, and operate built environments have important consequences and will determine the severity of climate impacts. Join the USGBC Research Department and expert panelists as they discuss the application of practical green building and urban design strategies to prepare for changing conditions. This session will provide an understanding of what decision makers at different scales can do to build resilience and reduce the potential for negative outcomes.

LEED 255 Climate Adaptation & the Built Environment is an archived webinar of the US GBC. The session is next Thursday, October 4, at Perkins Eastman’s Stamford, CT office.  It begins at 6:30 pm and can only be viewed in person at this location.

This program is approved for 1.5 hours of General (Not LEED Specific) GBCI hours as well as 1.5 AIA/CES LU/HSW hours.  This is a CTGBC sponsored viewing of.

The cost is $15 for CTGBC members and $25 for non-CTGBC members. Light refreshements will be served. To find out more about the event, visit the CTGBC website.  If you have questions, send an email to a.stark@perkinseastman.com
