Rocky Mountain Green: Keynote Presentation

GBCI: 0920018809

The U.S. Green Building Council has commissioned ClearPath Strategies, a global public opinion research company, to conduct independent nationwide research on people’s views of the environment. By and large, respondents from all walks of life are deeply concerned about the health of our environment over the long-term, but do very little to address the problem in their daily lives. When asked why, they say it simply feels like too daunting a task. And, in a wake-up call for our community, they still rank green buildings quite low as a viable avenue for improving the environment.
Eligible for 1 CE HOUR.

About

The U.S. Green Building Council has commissioned ClearPath Strategies, a global public opinion research company, to conduct independent nationwide research on people’s views of the environment. By and large, respondents from all walks of life are deeply concerned about the health of our environment over the long-term, but do very little to address the problem in their daily lives. When asked why, they say it simply feels like too daunting a task. And, in a wake-up call for our community, they still rank green buildings quite low as a viable avenue for improving the environment.

Throughout 2019, USGBC and the Living Standard campaign will continue this research, going out into communities across the U.S. and exploring how sustainability is part of the way in which we lead our lives. In this keynote address, David Bluestone, founder of ClearPath Strategies, will report out on how the public at large feels about the issues at the core of the green building community’s mission—sustainability, green buildings, and the environment—and how the green building community can scale our transformational efforts.

Objectives

  1. Understand people's view of the environment based on independent nationwide research.
  2. Learn how the green building community can scale our transformational efforts.
  3. Learn how the Living Standard campaign will continue research by going into communities across the U.S. to explore how sustainability is part of the way in which we lead our lives.
  4. Understand why survey respondents say they do very little to address environmental issues in their daily lives, despite being deeply concerned about the health of the environment.
