This year, we will be touring from South Boston to the Seaport, following the coastline to explore the area’s emerging environmental design, development, and ecological significance. Coastal ecosystems are rich resources that provide flood protection, carbon sequestration, and major social/economic benefits. Because of these unique and highly valuable resources, building along the coast requires a careful plan and future-oriented design. With this tour, we want to highlight some of the City of Boston and local architecture and engineering firms’ efforts to strike a balance between growing development and resiliency, while working to preserve ecosystems and communities alike. Nature needs us, and we need nature.
In the meantime, while we finalize the details and launch registration, be sure to hold the date with your friends and family, and check back here soon for the published route and stops. The BE+ Bike Tour is hosted by the BE+ Emerging Professionals Community.
Here are three things to know now:
The BE+ Emerging Professionals (EP) is a community of ascending professionals cross the green building industry and allied fields helping drive sustainable and regenerative design, construction and operation of the built environment. The committee provides professional support, development and advocacy tools through active networking, monthly programming and community events.
