Education @USGBC has created a series of videos about the basics of green building.

Green buildings are all around us and have profound effects, both positive and negative, on the natural environment, as well as the people who inhabit buildings every day.

We’ve created an introduction for everyone and anyone who wants to learn about the green buildings where they work, live, learn and play. Learn about how these spaces impact the environment, the economy and your life. The content is available in English and Spanish.

Log in, or if you don’t already have one, create a free user account to access all these great materials for free.

If you’re already a green building pro, consider sharing this with your friends and family who might be wondering what all this green buzz is about.

Watch a series of videos that walk you through what green building is, what it looks like, why it’s important, what you can do to support it and what LEED is. Then, use the worksheets to discover green building features in the spaces where you live, work, learn, and play.
