Green Builder Media’s third annual Sustainability Symposium 2019 promises to be our best one yet.  Check out the star-studded agenda, filled with visionary leaders who are leading the transition to a sustainable future.

Green Builder Media has scheduled the Sustainability Symposium 2019: The Desert Shall Bloom on Monday, February 18 at the Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall  on the UNLV campus.  Trust me—you don’t want to miss this one.


Given the urgency of our environmental realities, full-scale deployment of comprehensive climate solutions cannot wait (the UN’s World Meteorological Organization recently issued a report stressing the urgency of climate action with conviction, asserting that the "Earth’s climate is now changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilization, primarily as a result of human activities.”) 

We have thus designed the Sustainability Symposium 2019 to address head-on critical climate change topics, from global economic stability to national security to water to clean energy.
