Greenbuild International Conference and Expo


Just a quick post to highlight the upcoming Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in New Orleans, Oct 22-24.  Here’s the slightly over the top pitch from the organizers:

Greenbuild is the premier event for sustainable building. Featuring three exhilarating days of uplifting speakers, unmatched networking opportunities, showcases, LEED workshops and tours of green buildings in New Orleans, Greenbuild offers a place for thousands to gather and renew their commitment to the green movement.

With so much to see and do, you can’t miss the excitement and energy of Greenbuild 2014 in New Orleans.
One of the reasons this really intrigues me is because I hear more and more about the idea that while “green” building use less energy, they may be less-than-ideal in regards to the microbiome of those (closed) buildings.
Wonder if there will be any microbiology talks?
