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.

The organization selected for the Greenbuild 2019 Legacy Project will be announced this Spring.

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.

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.
