A note from Sara Gutterman, CEO, Green Builder
Dear fellow green building professionals,
Given the results of the election, our work in the green building and sustainability arena has become more important than ever. It’s paramount that we continue to spread the message that green building is not partisan, and that it is intelligent and cost-effective regardless of which side of the isle you’re on.
Over the next few years, any meaningful progress that we’re going to make relative to green building, energy efficiency, water conservation, healthy homes, and sustainable development will have to occur at the grassroots level. Strength comes in numbers, so, on behalf of Green Builder Media, I implore you to please join us as at our upcoming Sustainability Symposium 2017: Ready for Anything that we’re hosting in conjunction with Mayor Dyer and the City of Orlando on January 9 at the Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts in downtown Orlando (the day before the show floor opens at Design & Construction week.)
The Symposium, originally conceived to explore intelligent solutions for a resilient future, will now direct a laser focus on how cities, communities, business, building professionals and homeowners can work together to viably move sustainability activities, policies, and initiatives forward in what will presumably be a challenging political environment.
Along with some of today’s most forward-thinking sustainability leaders, including Governor Martin O’Malley, Philippe Cousteau, carbon-neutral NASCAR driver Leilani Münter, Mayor Dyer (Orlando), Mayor Stoddard (South Miami), and senior NASA scientist Carlton Hall, we plan to use the Symposium to reinforce our collective optimism and confidence that our work does—and needs to more than ever—make a difference.
If you’re comfortable sitting back and letting others make decisions about how and where we should build, what kind of energy we should use, what we drive, and what kind of connected technology should be incorporated into our homes, this event probably isn’t for you. But, if you want to take an active part in the transition to a sustainable future, don’t miss the opportunity to join Green Builder Media and other sustainability advocates at the Sustainability Symposium 2017: Ready for Anything.
Space is limited, so click here to register today. Full registration fees are $250.
It’s more important than ever that we take a bold stance to challenge conventional development models and inspire continued progress in the green building sector. By joining together, we will show anyone who would try to squash the fruits of our labor that we are inexorable.
See you at the Sustainability Symposium 2017: Ready for Anything on January 9, 2017 in Orlando!
