Event Description

This October, the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild presents the 2019 Northwest Green Building Slam + Summit at Kane Hall on the University of Washington Campus.

The Slam: "10 Presenters, 10 Slides, 10 Minutes"

the Green Building Slam. A simple idea, started years ago, has transformed into one of the most fun and inspirational green building events of the year. Learn about 10 innovative, sustainable, high-performance "green" buildings that push the envelope in our built environment. Projects range from residential to multi-family to mixed use developments in the Seattle area. 

Each of the juried 10 presenters will have just 10 minutes to show 10 slides of their exciting project as they explain what they learned, what they would do differently, and any other sustainable contributions that their project has made to our local community. Each presenter is an active member of the NW EcoBuilding Guild, has been trained by a speech coach, and is excited to share their project with the masses. Don't miss this night to remember!

​The Summit: 

Saturday, October 26th will be a day of sharing, chatting, toasting and note-taking. An opportunity to step outside your daily routine, get inspired, and connect with sustainable building professionals from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Registration includes light breakfast, lunch, and networking reception (with appetizers and drinks).
