This exciting program will look at sustainability beyond individual buildings to the district and neighborhood scale. How is the USGBC’s LEED ND rating system being used as a tool for enhancing communities in Massachusetts? How can our USGBC MA community of green building practitioners move beyond single building projects to entire neighborhoods and districts? How are government, for-profit and non-profits using LEED ND as a tool for enhancing sustainable development? This workshop will answer these and many other questions through a review of people and projects in Massachusetts that have used LEED ND as more than just a sustainable development certification program.
