from BCB…

Join Jill Bamburg, President and Co-Founder of Pinchot University (formerly Bainbridge Graduate Institute) and BCB host Christina Hulet as they discuss this month’s Building a Sustainable Economy lecture: Green Building – Success Through Financing, Entrepreneurship and Community Engagement.

The buildings in which we live, work and play protect us from nature’s extremes, yet they also affect our health and environment in countless ways. Patterns of development, transportation infrastructure, building location and design have direct and indirect influences on human health, solid waste, water and air quality.

As an alternative, green buildings are gaining momentum as environmentally responsible and resource efficient structures, finding the balance between homebuilding and the sustainable environment. However, successful green building implementation and management depends on the cooperation of engineers, architects, designers, contractors, entrepreneurs, clients, community, and financing agents.

Join us for a conversation with three leading experts in the sector and learn about local and national initiatives, technologies, and market trends: Molly McCabe of HaydenTanner, Kimberly Lewis of the U.S. Green Building Council, and Tadashi Shiga of Evergreen Certified. The event is on Friday, February 12, 5:30 – 7 PM at Bainbridge Public Library.

The BASE Lecture Series is developed in partnership with several local organizations, including the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce, Sustainable Bainbridge, Yes Magazine, Kitsap Regional Library and the Bainbridge Public Library.
