2019 Summits and Workshops
Elevating equity is the landmark strategy in building resilience within the lives of people, their communities, and infrastructure. USGBC has long been focused on resiliency, defining it as “the ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, and more successfully adapt to adverse events,” and we know that more sustainable buildings are the cornerstone to enhancing community resilience at scale.
In order to realize a sustainable future for all, the next generation of green building must focus on the development of smart and resilient cities and communities.
The Global Health & Wellness Summit brings together employers, building owners, designers, developers, manufacturers, employees and investors who are unlocking enormous benefits and potential in their buildings by committing to green, healthy buildings.
Every story about a green building is a story about people. And it’s imperative that buildings, communities, and cities will regenerate and sustain the health and vitality of all life within a generation. We believe that above all else, green building is at its heart about people.
Admission to a Workshop is included with your four-day conference pass. By attending, you can earn up to 7 hours of continuing education credit. Many workshops also qualify for LEED-specific hours.
All USGBC LEED education programs meet eligibility requirements for the LEED Green Associate, and many meet credential maintenance requirements for the Green Associate and LEED AP credentials. All workshops at Greenbuild are taught by skilled and experienced practitioners who are also trained facilitators.
