Built Positive Workshop
November 14, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
USGBC-Illinois is excited to be a local partner for the Built Positive Workshop Series!
This national workshop series, hosted by BuildingGreen, the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute and Google, is a three-hour interactive workshop that will bring together sustainability thought leaders in the built environment to help identify new opportunities to add value to their projects while bringing project values to life.
Facilitated by Nadav Malin, president of BuildingGreen, the high-energy sessions will explore design methodologies, material health programs, product and systems innovations, and a new definition of waste. Attendees will investigate and develop concepts for design, use, disassembly, and reuse that are fundamental to creating positive material flows and realizing positive outcomes for people, planet, and business.
- Discover emerging concepts in the sustainably built environment, including circular economy, buildings as material banks, material passports, health, wellness, and cradle to cradle.
- Learn to translate a client’s commitment to developing innovative, market-leading projects into a new value model for positive impact.
- Explore how materials and products designed with Cradle to Cradle principles form the basis for success in the design of circular systems.
- Bridge theories of positive impact with professional practice toward systemic change with bottom line impact.
Workshop participants will receive 3 AIA, IDCEC, and GBCI continuing education credits. A networking reception will follow the session.
