East Coast Green Virtual Conference
July 20 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
EAST COAST GREEN VIRTUAL 2-DAY CONFERENCE
THURSDAY, JULY 20, 2023
& THURSDAY, JULY 27, 2023
Climate action is one of two top goals of The American Institute of Architects (AIA), and the Institute calls on architects to support humanity’s collective call to climate action through an unrelenting commitment to sustainable and resilient design.
Designing and constructing buildings that diminish greenhouse gases are architectural imperatives. Designing and constructing buildings that support health, safety, and welfare are ethical imperatives. In short, designing and constructing buildings that can combat the greenhouse effect will improve our chances of repairing our planet while creating a healthy, resilient, and regenerative future.
The AIA New Jersey Chapter Committee on the Environment (COTE) East Coast Green Conference brings together professionals from numerous industry segments to discuss the future of design in an age where wellness and climate change demand equal attention. East Coast Green presents some of the most prominent regional players in sustainability, to speak on a wide variety of topics of interest to the design and construction industry.
Engage in up to 12 hours of environmentally related programming presented virtually on July 20th and July 27.
