Greenbuild Meeting Hails Main Street in November

USGBC's Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, taking place on Nov. 11-13, in Phoenix, Ariz., will focus on "Main Street Green: Connect to the Conversation." "Green buildings and homes are cropping up on main streets across the country, boosting the quality of life for all of their occupants and users, making this year's conference theme, Main Street Green, an even more relevant conversation," said Kimberly Lewis, vice president, Conferences and Events, U.S. Green Building Council.

"This year's Master Speakers will help elevate some of the key issues we face as a global community to the level of the main streets where we live, work, and play."

Speakers will include Daniel Wildcat, Sylvia Earl, Peter Gleick, Arthur Rubinfeld, and Josh Bernstein.

Greenbuild 2009 will feature more than 100 educational sessions, LEED and Education Provider workshops, off-site educational sessions, a two-day Residential Summit, and tours of local green building sites throughout the Arizona area.

About 1,700 exhibitors will showcase some of the leading technologies and products in green design, construction and operations.
