This event is bringing together policy makers and leaders in green building to talk not only about advancements in green building technologies, but how we can make our communities more sustainable for all. There will be national leaders in green building; Built Green homeowners; the mayors of Issaquah, Kirkland, and Arlington; and others who have a tremendous impact on our region. You’ll receive education on green building trends and get in the know about new technologies and strategies. And you’ll have tons of fun networking with fellow green building enthusiasts and celebrating at the reception and awards ceremony. Are you ready?!
The Built Green Conference has been occurring annually for over a decade, with the aim of providing valuable and cutting-edge information on green building and sustainability. The conference will cover a variety of topics related to green building, ranging from building science to policy, from deconstruction and displacement to discussions on equity, affordability, and community issues. This content will be covered throughout the day, including a keynote address, a variety of sessions to choose from, and lunch, all followed by an awards ceremony and reception. We’re looking forward to seeing you on this educational and fun day!
The keynote speaker for the 2018 conference is policy expert, movement builder, and chief executive officer of The Dream Corps, Vien Truong. The Dream Corps brings people together to solve America’s problems by backing initiatives that close prison doors and open doors of opportunity for all.
The Dream Corps includes Green for All, which works to build an inclusive green economy to lift people out of poverty; #cut50, which works to reduce crime and incarceration in all 50 states; #YesWeCode, which works to help 100,000 young women and men of diverse backgrounds find success in the tech sector; and #LoveArmy, a national network of people committed to revolutionary love.
