Malcolm Lewis IMPACT! Award – Planting a SEED

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.

Last year, several IMPACT! Award nominations made a splash in San Francisco. One was the SEED (Sustainable Education Every Day) - a modular living building classroom that meets the 20 imperatives of the Living Building Challenge. Each SEED classroom comes with a curriculum packet to become a living laboratory. These learning spaces, that can be placed anywhere in the world, will have the ability to connect with one another. They will teach children the importance of caring and restoring our planet.

 

Submit your nomination by Oct. 30.
