Malcolm Lewis IMPACT! Award – Democratic National Convention sustainability legacy initiative

Published on Written by Posted in Community

Thanks in part to its dedicated volunteers who contributed 500,000 hours to the green building movement in 2012 alone, the USGBC community continues to advance a healthier, more sustainable and prosperous built environment in communities across the globe. The Malcolm Lewis IMPACT! Award, a prestigious annual award, recognizes a high-impact, volunteer driven project or initiative that supports USGBC’s mission. 2013 nominations are open through Oct. 30. For more details, click here

Working for eleven months to speak on behalf of sustainability during the 2012 Democratic National Convention (DNC), the USGBC North Carolina Chapter rallied troops internally and forged partnerships with outside organizations. During the DNC, the chapter communicated its mission to thousands of global citizens by coordinating an Energy, Technology and Community Sustainability Legacy Village with several partners. The focal point of this village was the construction of a LEED registered Habitat for Humanity house.

 

Submit your nomination by Oct. 30.
