The education program has been announced for Rocky Mountain Green (RMG), a unique opportunity for collaboration and networking hosted by the USGBC Colorado community. RMG will take place from April 10–12 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown in Denver, Colorado.
The annual event brings together green building professionals, sustainability leaders and changemakers for discussions about today’s critical issues. Learn more about LEED, resilience strategies, equitable communities, human wellness and other current topics while meeting with colleagues from the broad Rocky Mountain region.
This year's education program offers four tracks:
- The Business Case for LEED: The sessions within this track will reveal the value and business opportunities that LEED can contribute to a project. From energy-smart leasing to enhanced commissioning, LEED is helping building owners and operators save time and money while moving toward a more sustainable future.
- The Future of Performance: One of the hallmarks of LEED is “continuous improvement.” The sessions within this education track will speak to the importance of continually raising the bar to work toward our mission of creating buildings and communities that will regenerate and sustain the health and vitality of all life within a generation.
- Community Design: Implementing sustainability, equity and carbon reduction goals are key facets of community development. This track will dive into the many aspects of community design and the people and projects that are working toward making our communities more resilient, safe and environmentally responsible.
- Rating System Crosswalks: The sessions within this track will bring to light the many synergies that exist between LEED and other GBCI rating systems, helping building owners, operators and occupants realize the true value of these collaborative systems.
