Greenbuild 2018 Priorities

  1. Expert-Level sessions: Greenbuild has a firm commitment to providing educational content for the current and future generations of green building experts. We are seeking an increase in the diversity and volume of Expert-Level (formerly known as 400-level) sessions that present detailed reviews of specific topics or work on cutting-edge issues.
  2. Immersive and experiential learning: Greenbuild aims to provide a breadth of educational opportunities for all learning styles and is seeking proposals that offer immersive learning experiences, including elements such as technology, deep reflection, play-based learning and active participation.
  3. Inspirational content: Greenbuild is calling for education that not only imparts knowledge, but also inspires action. Proposals are evaluated, in part, on whether or not they offer innovative or inspirational content to green building professionals.
  4. Rating system-specific sessions: We are seeking sessions that teach attendees about the current versions of the rating systems by providing specific, detailed information and guidance about the credit intents and requirements, supplemented with real-world experiences with the LEED, WELL and SITES rating systems. Please consult our guidance on how to develop a rating system-specific session.

We encourage you to submit your session proposal for consideration in the 2018 Greenbuild Core Education Program through our submittal site. Please review the Submittal Guide, the Call for Proposals, and the Program Policies before submitting.
