How can we reframe the sustainability conversation at the start of a project? Can a client’s mission and established set of values inspire a more fun and educational process to evaluate strategies? What resources exist and what’s trending?
Join USGBC-NCR and other thought leaders for a unique program that will rethink the typical eco-charrette/visioning session. During the program, two potential clients will introduce themselves; their mission, culture, project development history, and what they’re hoping to achieve for their next project. Breaking into multi-disciplinary teams, each participant will have the opportunity to develop and share their best “go to” sustainability arguments with other like-minded professionals for a fun-filled night of brainstorming and networking that will end with real-time client feedback.
