Event Description

The Stanford Building Decarbonization Learning Accelerator (BDLA) provides free teaching resources to professors so they can easily integrate information about building decarbonization into their architecture, engineering, or construction management courses.

Building decarbonization is also a critical environmental justice issue for communities of color, particularly Black communities. Black people are 75% more likely than their white counterparts to live in “fence-line” communities, which exist next to industrial facilities that produce noise, odor, traffic, and emissions that directly affect the population.

Decarbonization is a paradigm shift in building design, and teaching it effectively is the key to unlocking this transformation. This workshop for USGBC Emerging Professionals will introduce the topic of building decarbonization as part of this larger initiative to educate students and professionals about this critical new topic. The goal is to provide young professionals with the tools they will need to advance their careers in building design and further disseminate their knowledge of decarbonization to their peers and colleagues.
