Green Builder Media invites you to join us at our fourth annual Sustainability Symposium on January 20, 2020 in Las Vegas.  Focused on the nexus between environmental stewardship, social equity, and financial abundance, the event will highlight how sustainable development can optimize health and opportunity.

Martin Luther King said, “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him it is right.” 

Green Builder Media never shies away from confronting difficult issues and challenging subjects, so we’re crafting our fourth annual Sustainability Symposium 2020: Improving the Human Condition, which happens to be scheduled on Martin Luther King Day, to address the critical topic of how climate change is exacerbating environmental, social, and economic inequality. 

While it’s not an easy—or even popular—topic, it’s of vital importance as we transition to a sustainable economy and metamorphose into an alternate social structure.

Sustainability simply can’t exist without opportunity. And that opportunity must facilitate physical, psychological, and economic health.

Understanding the role that the built environment plays in the shifting zeitgeist of our society is paramount.  Sustainable development doesn’t just represent energy efficiency, water conservation, smart technologies, and renewables.  Truly sustainable development also provides the ability for inhabitants to live vibrantly and age with dignity, while simultaneously protecting (even regenerating) ecosystems and other species.

Our riveting agenda includes presentations from global sustainability leader and author Andrew Winston, world-renowned architect and Founder of Architecture 2030 Ed Mazria, award-winning Thrive Home Builders CEO Gene Meyers, and distinguished civil rights attorney Kalpana Kotagal.

Additionally, we invite you to join us for a special gala dinner on Sunday, January 19 to celebrate the winners of our annual Home of the Year and Sustainability Awards, a program that has set the standard for recognizing the most advanced green products, projects, and professionals in the industry.

Space is strictly limited and by reservation only, so reserve your seat today!  Register for the Symposium before November 22, 2019 using the code EarlyBird and you’ll receive a $50 discount.

A sincere thank you to our generous sponsors, Trane, Mitsubishi Electric Trane, and Zappos, for helping to make the Symposium and gala dinner possible.
