Working for eleven months to speak on behalf of sustainability during the 2012 Democratic National Convention (DNC), the USGBC North Carolina Chapter rallied troops internally and forged partnerships with outside organizations. During the DNC, the chapter communicated its mission to thousands of global citizens by coordinating an Energy, Technology and Community Sustainability Legacy Village with several partners. The focal point of this village was the construction of a LEED registered Habitat for Humanity house.
