The Indiana Chapter of USGBC is pleased to be a first-time host for the Greening the Heartland regional conference and to invite attendees from the 12-state USGBC Heartland Region and beyond, to join with our many Indiana constituents and associates for this exciting three-day event. We anticipate more than 1,000 conference attendees to gather at the Indianapolis Convention Center and enjoy our wonderful city during May 16-18, 2012. Whether you’re interested in greening your building, your neighborhood, your business or organization, or protecting the sanctity of our natural environment, we encourage you to join business representatives, building trade experts, government officials, educators and students, non-profit leaders and sustainability advocates for GTH2012.
At Greening the Heartland 2012, we will explore interdependent elements of sustainability. While green buildings are critical components in the design of sustainable communities, their key advantages rely on relative pathways and infrastructure - a context we will address in the conference as watts, water, waste and wheels. Providing our buildings with clean energy, a precious supply of water, the efficient use of materials while minimizing waste, and a convenient and sustainable means of arrival results in truly green buildings and sustainable development.
The theme BUILDING COMMUNITY indicates our genuine desire to bring people together to share visions and solutions for sustainable communities in which to work, play, learn and live. We will also seek to join business and community leaders with green building professionals and product suppliers to achieve greater understanding of how environmental, economic and social trends of the maturing 21st century will influence our Heartland communities.
