2014 is a big year for sustainability here in New Orleans. Water, energy, resilience, green building; these are just some areas where leaders in our City are promoting a shift towards sustainable infrastructure in order build a stronger New Orleans. Join LifeCity for our monthly Green Seminar with the Chamber of Commerce as we highlight three exciting events that you don’t want to miss: The Building Resilience Workshop V, The Water Challenge, and the Greenbuild Conference.
The Building Resilience Workshop V: The Building Resilience Workshop convenes diverse stakeholders to engage in addressing natural and man-made hazards affecting coastal communities. Since 2010, the mission of the annual Building Resilience Workshop has been to identify and promote the implementation of innovative and sustainable strategies that strengthen resilience in south Louisiana and around the world.
The Water Challenge: The nationally award-winning Water Challenge is a collaborative initiative of The Idea Village and the Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF) that aims to identify and support entrepreneurial solutions that apply innovative approaches to how we live with water. Now in its fourth year, the 2014 Water Challenge will harness the entrepreneurial expertise found within our dynamic delta system to address flooding, water quality, and coastal restoration.The Water Challenge will culminate in a daylong event on Monday, March 24th, which will highlight the momentum and opportunities driving entrepreneurial activity, creating jobs, inspiring research, and attracting dollars for our globally significant water sector.
Greenbuild: Greenbuild is the premier event for sustainable building. Featuring three exhilarating days of uplifting speakers, unmatched networking opportunities, showcases, LEED workshops and tours of green buildings in New Orleans, Greenbuild offers a place for thousands to gather and renew their commitment to the green movement.
