Delaware Valley Green Building Council is excited to announce the eighth annual Sustainability Symposium, happening May 4th at Penn State at The Navy Yard. The Symposium is a full day of educational sessions covering cutting edge green building and sustainability topics and industry best practices, including LEED, Passive House, Living Building Challenge, Enterprise, WELL, green stormwater infrastructure, and 2030 Districts. Please join us to hear experts from across the region and beyond as they gather to discuss their current work, opportunities for social, environmental, and economic impact, and challenges ahead in the sustainability field.
