Submit education session proposals for next year's event by Nov. 18.

Next year will be the 13th that USGBC Colorado has hosted Rocky Mountain Green (RMG)—the largest green building event in the Mountain region.

By bringing together various stakeholders, superb educational sessions and inspiring speakers, the 2020 Rocky Mountain Green will actively engage the green building industry to think above and beyond the standard and take action to push sustainability practices into the future.

This two-day conference hosts off-site workshops and activities and the Women in Green breakfast, in addition to the traditional conference with keynote speakers, breakout sessions and exhibitors. More than 500 people are expected to attend this year’s event.

Rocky Mountain Green

When: April 30–May 1, 2020
Where: Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center

Program priorities

The Rocky Mountain Green Program Selection Committee is seeking presentations that inspire attendees into action while focusing on programs that advance our mission. The committee wants presentations that enhance the knowledge of our members and interested parties about design, construction and operational strategies, and that promote green building best practices and the LEED v4, Arc, SITES, TRUE, Parksmart, PEER, or GRESB processes.

We also seek to expand an understanding of the importance of healthy, sustainable buildings and communities to a broader audience. This year, the committee is seeking cutting-edge strategies, stories of community resilience and equitable development, and technical content for our more seasoned green building practitioners.
