Northeast Summit for a Sustainable Built Environment
March 8, 2019
NESSBE (Northeast Summit for a Sustainable Built Environment) is a biennial northeast regional summit meant to include a larger community of building professionals, owners, academics, policymakers and advocates in a conversation about sustainability in the built environment. The theme of the second NESSBE is Equity of Place: Social Justice in the Built Environment. The focus areas are material health and social justice, climate justice and conservation, resilience, community engagement, and affordable housing.
This event is building upon the first NESSBE held in April 2017 with the theme Health of Place: Health and Wellbeing in the Built Environment, which was a great success. The organizers are The Connecticut Green Building Council (CTGBC) and Living Building Challenge: Connecticut Collaborative (LBC CT) with the help of the Yale Office of Sustainability, and the Ludwig Center for Community & Economic Development.
