The Green Building Learning Zone

The Green Building Learning Zone brings together designers, builders, suppliers, educators and consultants from the green building world who are all committed to creating sustainable buildings and educating the public about their importance.

In this 600sq ft pavilion, homeowners can learn about the different ways they can incorporate sustainability into their living spaces. There will be a sample table and booth library, as well as lectures on everything from building science to health and well-being in the built environment.
