Resilience Summit | Elevating Equity

The Resilience Summit is on Tuesday, November 19.

Elevating equity is the landmark strategy in building resilience within the lives of people, their communities, and infrastructure. USGBC has long been focused on resiliency, defining it as “the ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, and more successfully adapt to adverse events,” and we know that more sustainable buildings are the cornerstone to enhancing community resilience at scale.

In order to realize a sustainable future for all, the next generation of green building must focus on the development of smart and resilient cities and communities.

Admission to a Summit is included with your four-day conference pass. See more about packages and pricing.

 

By attending, you can fulfill eight GBCI credits in ONE day.
