Description: Green, sustainable, healthy. These words are being thrown around the building industry, becoming mundane and common place. What more can we do? First, we need to look at what we have done. We have created without consequence, designed without regard for our waste. Our world is increasingly becoming a landfill. Now what? We need to Create Better. By thinking of our waste as a resource, using our buildings to restore the environment, and by optimizing our designs to minimize our impact, we can restore the beauty of the natural world while continuing to prosper. This presentation details how to accomplish this and join the movement to Create Better.
- Understand why we need to Create Better
- Discover how waste can be a resource
- Understand how the built environment can give back
- Learn how to optimize designs to minimize environmental and health implications
