The U.S. Green Building Council’s Los Angeles chapter will host the conference and expo on May 20 and 21.
The following is a press release from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Los Angeles chapter announcing the dates and schedule for its 21st My Green Building Conference and Expo. The in-person and virtual event will run from May 20 to May 21.
The U.S. Green Building-Los Angeles Chapter’s (USGBC-LA) 21st My Green Building Conference and Expo (MyGBCE), the longest-running and largest gathering of leading sustainability and green building advocates (public and private) in Southern California—returns to in-person + virtual, and relocates to LA Trade Tech College (LATTC) in downtown LA. Though both days are open to all, the event’s programming will be Industry-facing on May 20th, with Main Stage programming plus select sessions offered online – offering a hybrid approach. The May 21st event will focus on community engagement, aimed at anyone working in or simply curious about a greener built environment. Friday is free to USGBC-LA members, $75 for non-members; Saturday is free for everyone! (For Agenda, Speakers & Registration, please visit usgbc.la/mygbce.)
Rebranded after 20 years from the “Municipal” to “My” Green Building Conference and Expo, to emphasize that every person has a role in addressing the urgency of the climate crisis, this year’s theme is “Accelerating Action Together”. MyGBCE will offer a central place for discussion on issues ranging from building codes tackling climate action and equity goals, to concrete’s carbon footprint, from EV charging and equity to building community power through a greener workforce, as well as green homes, green education for kids, mass timber, corporate ESG strategies, and metaverse-guided design.
“After twenty years of this signature green building event in Southern California, we couldn’t be more excited for our re-branded approach to engage a broader, more diverse audience in the conversation around creating a more sustainable society for all,” shares Ben Stapleton, Executive Director, USGBC-LA. “This is MY Green Building Conference, but this is also YOUR Green Building Conference, and ultimately this is OUR Green Building Conference as we accelerate action together to tackle the challenge of climate change.”
