About

Green buildings are the new science-backed frontier of healthy living.

We have plenty of hints about how our buildings can influence our well-being. But very few people have the expertise and time to evaluate scads of scientific evidence relating to buildings and health. And even if we could, it still wouldn’t be easy to prioritize so much information to create wellness-promoting spaces. Let’s say we did, though. How could we be sure to get all the health stuff right without forgetting other green building priorities in the process?

In this course focused on green buildings and human health, BuildingGreen takes an in-depth look at rating systems and certifications including the WELL Building Standard, Fitwel, and beyond, providing an analysis of the systems designed to simplify and incentivize health-related priorities.
