Sustainable building practices must continue to move into the mainstream. What are the benchmarks that enable us to evaluate progress and impacts? Green Day Forum 2010 takes a critical look at how we measure the momentum of building sustainably and the resulting market transformation, while exploring innovative strategies that seek to bridge industry gaps and scale up efforts to mitigate climate change.
One of the keynote speakers will be Edward Mazria, Founder Architecture 2030. Edward Mazria is an internationally recognized architect, author, educator and visionary with a long and distinguished career. His award-winning architecture and planning projects span 35 years and each employs a cutting-edge environmental approach to design. He is the author of numerous published works, including the ‘bible’ of solar design, “The Passive Solar Energy Book,” which is currently in use worldwide.
Most recently, Mr. Mazria has reshaped the national and international dialogue on climate change to incorporate building design and the building sector. He is the founder of Architecture 2030, an innovative and flexible research organization focused on protecting our global environment. He developed and issued the 2030 Challenge, a measured and achievable strategy to dramatically reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and fossil-fuel consumption by the year 2030.
