One of the most elusive goals in the sustainability movement is carbon-neutrality: the effort to design and construct buildings, neighborhoods and cities that do not produce additional net carbon emissions in creation or operation. The challenges in achieving carbon-neutrality are multi-faceted, and these panelists, as accomplished architects, student leaders, policymakers, builders and activists, will bring diverse perspectives to the discussion.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify interrelationship between current building construction and climate trends

2. Learn about various methods of obtaining carbon neutrality

3. Examine solutions and barriers to implementing and achieving methods to obtain carbon neutrality

4. Observe case studies of successful projects that advance efforts toward carbon neutrality

Audience: Intermediate
