Are you new to sustainability, green building and LEED, or looking for a refresher? You are in the right place!
This course is ideal for building professionals and students seeking to learn the fundamentals of sustainability and how these principles can be applied to the built environment. Our built environment has a great impact on people, the planet and profitability. We’ll take a look at how building green is a force for change and how you can use your talents to get involved in the green movement! We’ll also introduce you to the different green building rating systems, the green building process, the cost of building green and also take a look at several case studies to show how rating systems such as LEED play a role in the green movement.
“ Educating ourselves, embracing change and being advocates of change are the first steps to finding solutions to the problems associated with our built environment. You can’t learn anything if you think you know it already. Let’s open our minds, realize that no matter how much we know, there is nearly an infinite amount that we still don’t know. Join us as we present “Namaste LEED: Sustainability, Green Buildings and LEED”.
