Northeast Summit for a Sustainable Built Environment: Health of Place

April 29, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 6:30 pm

$25 - $175

Join us at this inaugural NESSBE (Northeast Summit for a Sustainable Built Environment) Summit to discuss how the built environment can promote health and wellbeing. We are starting a conversation that reveals the inextricable connection of sustainable design with improving and supporting human health and wellbeing. A variety of expert speakers will focus on health and happiness, biophilia, biomimicry, energy and water conservation, materials, and resilience. The Connecticut Green Building Council (CTGBC) and Living Building Challenge: Connecticut Collaborative (LBC CT) are organizing a Northeast Regional Green Building Summit al​​ong with the Yale School of Forestry and Office of Sustainability and help from other regional green building organizations. This summit builds on former annual USGBC Chapter summits, but is the inaugural event to include a larger community of building professionals, academics, and owners in a regional conversation about sustainability in the built environment. This event is intended to travel to new locations throughout the region each year.
