Announcing Portland’s Second Annual Sustainable Building Week!

Sustainable Building Week 2019 Blog  Sustainable Building Week

May 2019 — Sustainable Building Week (SBW) has announced the dates for the second annual event-filled week for Portland’s AEC industry professionals and organizations: October 14-18, 2019. The week will bring the best and brightest together to educate, connect and foster opportunities for future collaboration to keep Portland on the forefront of the green building industry.

Providing educational events along with partner open houses and happy hours, SBW will increase the profile of sustainable building issues through outreach, advocacy and education. A collaborative group of volunteer professional organizations and academic institutions will come together to provide a truly compelling program.

Attendees have the flexibility to choose which activities fit their interests and schedules, then sign up for each organizations’ event – there’s no commitment to attend all events and no subscription required. Events will provide the opportunity to learn about new trends in sustainable building design and use, connect with fellow professionals and build a coalition of practitioners that can strive for continual improvement in our built and natural environments.
