This panel of distinguished USGBC chapter representatives will discuss their local level efforts to bring social equity into the green building movement. Through innovate partnerships, curriculum creation and a dedication to rebuild, all of our panelists identified needs within their communities and are working to fulfill them. By developing the Green Construction Skills Initiative, USGBC New York is creating necessary education and a certification process for building trade professionals. The Northern California Chapter - in partnership with Green for All, founded by Van Jones, businesses and organizations - is forming the Green Jobs Growth Alliance to make green jobs a reality for low-income communities. Through the Arkansas Chapter two initiatives have come to fruition: an affordable homes partnership to revitalize the community and NOLA 100, a rebuilding effort in New Orleans focused on energy conservation technology to bring economic benefits to homeowners.
