As part of its hands-on, nature-based curriculum, Learning Gate School has chosen to build all future additions to its campus in an environmentally friendly way.

Green Build 2011 day 1

The USGBC 10th annual Green Build convention started today in Toronto with the International Summit and chapter leaders from around the county gathering for the the Chapter Forum. This is my 10th straight year to attend Green Build, since it all began in Austin, TX with about 2500. The closing plenary of the international summit wrapped up with representatives from many different countries from all over the planet giving a short update on their recent green building accomplishments. There was even a call for a consistent world wide green building standard. The trade show exhibit hall opened tonight and we just got a little taste of all the new products and ideas that are out there. It was great to visit the Interface booth, and see my good friend George Bandy there. There was definitely something missing there, with the passing of Ray Anderson a few months ago. You could always run into Ray at Green Build's past, and he would always have time to chat for awhile. The main conference and education sessions start on Wednesday. Goodnight from Toronto. Michael
