Course Description The construction and operation of buildings is the most environmentally damaging of all human activities in the United States and possibly the world. Coined in the late 80’s, so-called “green buildings” have the potential to largely eliminate negative environmental externalities and, with emerging design practices and technologies, even prove to be a restorative force for nature. As the largest consumer of energy on the planet, climate change will not be solvable without full-scale implementation of green building programs and policies. This 14-week course will offer participants practical tools to understand the benefits of green buildings and the barriers and policy and programmatic prescriptions that can deliver this vital solution at the necessary scale, scope and speed to implement 21c sustainable solutions.
