Some of the nation's most ecologically savvy builders, architects and activists will make the case that construction and planetary stewardship can co-exist.

You may have heard of Andrew Winston, author of The Big Pivot. He's known for his insightful speaking and tough talk about how businesses MUST change to meet greenhouse gas goals. But at the same time, he argues that they can remain profitable and viable. Winston and other leading figures on the front lines of sustainability will share their insights in a special day prior to Design & Construction Week in Vegas in mid January.

This year marks the 4th annual Sustainability Symposium. It's a thought-provoking, action-oriented series, which aims at presenting effective methods to jump start real change in how we use (and sometimes abuse) resources.

This year's theme for the Symposium is Improving the Human Condition. The event will be held on Monday, January 20, 2020 (the day before the show floor opens at Design & Construction Week) at the Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall on the UNLV campus in Las Vegas. 


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.

The event will highlight how a sustainable built environment can foster environmental stewardship, social equality, and financial prosperity.  Sustainable communities embody more than energy efficiency, water conservation, smart technologies, and renewables—they also protect the human condition, providing the fundamentals for people to live vibrantly and with dignity. 

Other presenters include world-renowned architect Ed Mazria, Green New Deal co-author Rhianna Gunn-Wright, award-winning Thrive Home Builders CEO Gene Meyers, and distinguished civil rights attorney Kalpana Kotagal.

Additionally, Green Builder Media will host a special networking dinner on Sunday, January 19 at the Zappos Campus to celebrate our annual Home of the Year and Sustainability Award winners.
