Green Builder Media is delighted to announce the Sustainability Symposium 2019: The Desert Shall Bloom, scheduled for February 18, 2019 at the fabulous Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall on the UNLV campus.  For anyone who cares about green building, sustainable innovation, and climate action, this is truly a can’t miss event.

Green Builder Media’s annual Sustainability Symposium has established a reputation for being one of the most interesting, inspiring, and fun events of the year, drawing an influential national audience of esteemed sustainability professionals, business executives, building professionals, elected officials, city planners, students, and national media.

GBM-SS19-logo-2-webOur Sustainability Symposium 2019: The Desert Shall Bloom promises to exceed expectations and transcend the high bar set by the ambitious Sustainability Symposium 2017: Ready for Anything and the epic Sustainability Symposium 2018: Champions of Change.

Scheduled to take place on Monday, February 18, 2019 (the day before the show floor opens at Design & Construction Week, otherwise known as IBS/KBIS) from 9:00am-5:30pm at the stunning Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall on the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) campus, the event will bring together some of the brightest and most progressive minds in the sustainability sector.

Brimming with vision and ingenuity, the Symposium’s agenda features global leaders including:

  • A welcoming message by Jeff Bridges, Academy-Award winning actor and climate activist (yes, ‘The Dude’!)
  • General Wesley Clark (ret.), four-star general, former Army Chief of Staff, Presidential advisor, and fervent climate action advocate
  • Bill Walton, NBA All-Star icon and passionate sustainability enthusiast
  • Susan Kucera, award-winning Director, Cinematographer, and Producer of eco-films including “Breath of Life” and “Living in the Future’s Past” (co-produced with Jeff Bridges)
  • Gwen Migita, Social Impact & Inclusion Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer, Caesars Entertainment
  • Ron Jones, Founder/President Green Builder Media and industry provocateur

While I’m bursting with excitement for the entire day, I’m particularly looking forward to the closing session, when The Green Builder®--our very own Ron Jones—will go one-on-one with legendary NBA Giant of Sustainability Bill Walton, in what promises to be a raucous, irreverent, and wildly entertaining session covering a wide range of topics that are guaranteed to motivate and enlighten.
