Event Description

Architects, engineers and builders have become increasingly effective at designing and delivering high performance buildings. Now if only we had people who were ready to live and work appropriately in these great buildings. Leveraging insights from social science you can influence human behaviors and ultimately you can facilitate a culture where saving energy and reducing waste is “just what people like us do.” Join USGBC Missouri Gateway for a lively discussion and lots of practical examples of how you can inspire changes that ultimately create a new normal.


USGBC-MGC’s Higher Education & Emerging Professionals Committees invites students and recent graduates to attend a special networking session from 5:00-5:30 pm before the October Program to connect with professionals active in green building and sustainability. Participants will rotate in groups between the sustainability professionals to discuss their career path and involvement in sustainability. Full time students and emerging professionals can attend the networking session and program free of charge. Register using the link below.
