Coming up April 28th & 29th, 2017, will be the inaugural Northeast Summit for a Sustainable Built Environment (NESSBE). Coming to New Haven, CT, this unique event is a joint effort by the CTGBC, Yale University School of Forestry and Office of Sustainability, and the Living Building Challenge: Connecticut Collaborative. Other local regional green building organizations will be joining in as well!
For these two days, join in on the conversation about the connection between human health and sustainability. Topics will revolve around health & happiness, biophilia & biomimicry, energy & water, materials, and urban agriculture.
This event will be in addition to other USGBC summits, though now this one is designed to work with the larger community of building professionals, academics, and owners. It is expected that this summit will travel to different locations each year.
