Sustainability Summit

Sustainability Summit and Dinner Tour

The second UW Sustainability Summit will highlight the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified buildings on campus. This even will kick off with a panel of speakers discussing the successes and challenges of building "green" at 7200 ft, and presentations from the architects of UW's five LEED-certified buildings. Following the speakers, participants will tour the Visual Arts Building, Bim Kendall House, Berry Biodiversity Conservation Center, and College of Business and enjoy a four-course dinner of locally-sourced foods. Architects and UW representatives will be on hand to explain the sustainable design features of each building.
