Greenbuild is coming to Boston in 2017!
It's time to start thinking about educational sessions to produce and deliver at the conference next year.
Greenbuild is soliciting entries from presenters already – and the proposals are due Friday, January 13, 2017.
Recently, the steering committee for the conference identified two new important priorities:
· Academic Study: Greenbuild has a firm commitment to the role of academic studies in advancing the mission of transforming the built environment. We are seeking proposals that highlight ongoing or recent research that impacts the built environment, the health of building occupants, our communications about it, or human behaviors that relate to it.
· New Voices: Greenbuild is a place for industry leaders, novices, and a new generation of leaders alike to gather. We are seeking to provide opportunities for new voices to share their experiences, thinking and work with the Greenbuild audience.
The subject area focii are:
- Health and Well Being
- Existing Buildings, with a focus on Historic Preservation
- Innovation in Energy
- Social Responsibility, Community Action & Engagement
You have probably been wanting to present on your area of expertise: now is the time to organize a deck of slides and practice your best instructional voice. Submit a presentation for the education sessions today!
If you are interested in getting involved with the local Greenbuild Host Committee, come to our volunteer recruitment event on 12/15 in Boston after work.
