ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Each year, the Built Green Conference beckons the brightest and best in green building from across the Northwest and beyond. Attendees receive valuable, cutting-edge information on green building and sustainability through an array of immersive topics related to green building. From building science to policy, from post-occupancy research to discussions on equity, affordability, and community issues and more, the full-day conference offers education and insight for all.
Conference staples include a keynote address and a variety of sessions to choose from, along with a hearty and healthy lunch, all followed by an awards ceremony and buzzy reception primed for networking.
This year’s keynote speaker is Vien Truong, one of the country’s foremost policy experts and strategists on building an equitable green economy. She serves as CEO of the Dream Corps, and leads Green For All, a national initiative that puts communities of color at the forefront of the climate movement and equality at the center of environmental solutions. Vien has developed numerous energy, environmental, transportation, and economic policies and programs at the state, federal and local levels. She has advised on billions of dollars in public investments for energy and community development programs - including helping to create the biggest fund in history for low income communities.
