    555 South Flower, Downtown LA

    Since November, new fault lines have emerged around a wide range of issues, ranging from labor and development to immigration and healthcare, civil liberties, immigration, climate change and women’s rights. Many of these issues impact women in the green arena both personally and professionally.

    Women in the green building movement care about making the world a better place. But what does that really mean and how can we join a broader “movement of movements”? Where are opportunities for us to take the lead, and how can we be good allies to communities that are on the front lines?

    Join us as we begin to explore these complex questions with leaders from the LA community in the areas of labor, law and social equity. Hear about the communities they serve, the greatest needs they have, their greatest sources of hope, and how women in green can play a role.

    "The Power of Exponential Thinking:  Creating the XPRIZE for Healthy Buildings"


    presented by: Eric Corey Freed, Chief Community Officer, EcoDistricts


    Imagine if we could harness the power of nature's technologies to create a new type of construction, where every building is a LEED Platinum building.  In this talk, you'll discover how we can harness the cutting edge science to literally GROW buildings that absorb VOCs and CO2, heal themselves and adapt to their surroundings.  Hear from a LEED Fellow on a new innovation that will transform our industry.

    In 2016, the XPRIZE Foundation set out to establish a “moonshot” for construction by creating the XPRIZE for Healthy Buildings.  In this talk, you’ll learn how the team approached this unique opportunity to develop a way to (literally) grow buildings by fusing synthetic biology, genomics, parametric modeling and 3D printing to create a disruption and paradigm shift.


    Please join us for drinks, food, networking and this new talk from one of our favorite presenters, Eric Corey Freed!
