In order for us to maximize collaboration with green building professionals and communities, and ensure our exchange of information benefits from the diversity, talent and expertise of our Missouri Gateway region*, preference will be given to educational content of a 200 – 300 level addressing:

1.) What needs to change with the way we build today? (Or don’t build?)

2.) Specific examples of Climate Adaptation & Resiliency

3.) Connecting Green Building and Environmental Sustainability Governance (ESG)

4.) Adaptive Reuse of our Buildings and Built Environment

5.) Shifting from Energy Efficiency to Carbon Reduction

6.) The national focus on Infrastructure – How do Buildings fit in?

The climate crisis is now, and resiliency in our built environment cannot be true without equity in our built environment. The “pandemic, high heat, flash floods, and electrical outages taught us that we need each other. We have solutions, we need public will; and public policy,” says USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter committee member Susan Armstrong MS, PE. Our Green Buildings Are Better community is asking, do you have the engineering and architectural solutions? Then,

“SHOW ME” your Green Building SOLUTIONS. 

*USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter territory covers the St. Louis metropolitan area, Southern Illinois, mid-Missouri and southwestern Missouri. Cities within Missouri Gateway’s territory also include Columbia (MO) and Springfield (MO).
