As a participant on the BSA’s Committee for the Advancement of Sustainability, I wanted to share some information about a free forum on June 19th. The committee promotes a sustainable agenda beyond the immediate focus of architectural practice, and engages other organizations in a dialogue that promotes sustainable principles. This year our task has been to organize a forum which will focus on empowering municipalities across Massachusetts to develop sustainable strategies for buildings, infrastructure, and planning. The forum will discuss what communities throughout the Commonwealth are currently doing in terms of stretch code, energy reporting, green financing, and how the state can support these efforts. The format will also allow for an interactive discussion on what communities might do in the future. I hope to see you there.
