Legacy Project

This year, Greenbuild Atlanta is excited to partner with Sustainable Design Collaborative Atlanta for a more comprehensive project. SDCA is an Atlanta based team of representatives from the diverse building professions who collaborate annually on a specific community outreach project. Historically, the project
organizations have a strong root in progressing sustainability and enhancing the local community.

With your participation we can continue the Greenbuild Legacy Project tradition in the Atlanta metro area.

To that end, the 2019 Greenbuild Host Committee is:

  • Inviting proposals for the Greenbuild 2019 Legacy Project for the Metro Atlanta area;
  • Providing a minimum of $10,000 as seed funding with the potential for additional contributions, including labor/services, materials, and/or additional fundraising to support the execution of the selected project;
  • Working with Sustainable Design Collaborative Atlanta to offer design services for the project. SDCA works with the selected organization to create a vision and plan for the execution of their project.
  • Seeking proposals that maximize the number and breadth of key impact sectors affected.

To register your interest in this RFP and ensure communication of any future correspondence please email shaerther@usgbc.org with your name and your organization’s name. Please write “2019 Legacy Project Question” in the email subject line.

Final proposals must be submitted no later than 5:00 pm EST on Friday, March 1, 2019.

Science Giants - Greenbuild 2018 Legacy Project

Science Giants immerses high school students in environmental sciences and science outreach. The six-week summer program targets 15 students of color. Youth will build a garden bed and harvest for Inspiration Kitchens, a neighborhood restaurant that employs and serves homeless and previously incarcerated community members.

History of the Legacy Project
Past conferences sponsored projects that continue to serve their communities long after the attendees from Greenbuild have departed. These projects include a space to create and problem solve utilizing S.T.E.A.M. curricula while reusing discarded safe manufacturing materials in Los Angeles, an interactive playground in Philadelphia, a new urban food studio in Washington, D.C., and a green building technology training program for young people considering trades work in Boston.
