We are excited to partner with the Connecticut Green Building Council and others on the Northeast Summit for a Sustainable Built Environment (NESSBE) happening March 8 at Yale University. This biennial northeast regional summit aims to include a 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.
Summit 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.
