Session proposals for Greenbuild
2013 are due this Friday, January 11th.
Greenbuild is the world’s largest conference and expo
dedicated to green building. This year the conference will be held November 20
through 22 in Philadelphia. Mark your calendars now.
The first Greenbuild conference was held in Austin in 2002
and attended by a little over 4,000 industry experts. Last year’s event in San
Fracisco attracted over 24,000 registrants and 862 exhibitors, representing 90
countries. The conference organizers want to share the message that, “Whatever
your story, your background or your nationality, you are a citizen of our
planet, a citizen of our community, a citizen of Greenbuild Nation. Together we
are reaching across borders to build a better tomorrow.”
The SEI Sustainability Committee website welcomes all design professionals. The goal of our website is to provide information relevant to sustainability in structural engineering, promote discussion of sustainable design topics in structural engineering, and serve as a link between organizations and efforts. Visitors may view the current efforts of the committee and refer to past publications.
