Event description


Healthy Environments Large and Small

Health. We tend to think of it in terms of our personal well-being but it is inextricably dependent on the environments we create and affect. From indoor environmental quality standards to net zero projects, from material choices to biophilic cities, GBF18 examines how we can build healthy environments while we maintain a healthy environment. Join 400 green building colleagues at the Green Building Festival to hear how healthy buildings contribute to a healthy planet.

Continuing education credits / hours certificate (5.5 hours) will be provided to attending delegates.
