Malcolm Lewis IMPACT! award – sustainability through the eyes of children

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.

HMC Architects created a sustainability program for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students at McKinley Elementary School in Santa Monica, CA that focused on energy, water, and waste. The goal was to provide students with a global perspective of environmental issues and give them suggestions on how they can build a better planet. Technology made it possible to reach beyond Santa Monica as students from Venezuela participated remotely in the workshops.
