Greenbuild is the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. Thousands of building professionals from all over the world come together at Greenbuild for three days of outstanding educational sessions, renowned speakers, green building tours, special seminars, and networking events.
Architecture for Humanity will be represented by Development Strategist Norma Taylor and Sustainable Design Fellow Stacey McMahan. Stacey will be participating as a speaker in a session called Rebuilding Sustainable Communities after Disasters on Thursday, November 18.
The session will highlight design-related efforts to respond in culturally-sensitive and environmentally sustainable ways to natural disasters around the world. Presenters will highlight efforts that individuals (including USGBC Members) can contribute to or participate in directly, as well as more systematic efforts undertaken by the U.S. government to ensure that development and reconstruction work addresses climate change issues. The session will also provide an update specifically on rebuilding efforts in Haiti, underscoring the importance of remaining focused on devastated communities long after the cameras have moved on.
