Each week we will be featuring blog posts from each of our collaborators to highlight the exciting events we have planned and professional talent engaged in this week.
After a six year hiatus, it is time to bring back the 10x10x10 Green Building Slam to Portland! The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild is excited to be a collaborating entity of the Sustainable Building Week (SBW). SBW is fully in line with the Guild’s mission to empower people through education to transform the built environment for long term sustainability.
For more than 24 years, the NW EcoBuilding Guild has consistently and steadily driven forward the principles and practice of deep green building through the grassroots advocacy of our active chapters in Portland, Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia. We support the innovative and progressive work of our members in the Pacific Northwest to improve the relationship between our communities and our built environment. We consider the needs of the seventh generation in all that we do. As a community of builders, designers, suppliers, homeowners, and partners concerned with ecological building across the nation. The Guild empowers people through education to transform the built environment for long term sustainability.
The Ecobuilding Guild Portland Chapter is committed to serving as an education resource for professionals, officials, and the public. Our members demonstrate how we address change in our environment with innovative building practices. We adopt new technologies, safer and more efficient materials, and share our experiences with one another. Join today as a business member and champion the new era of building as a member of the Guild.
The Northwest Green Building Slam event is produced by the Portland Chapter of the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild in partnership with Passive House NW, and our presenting sponsor, Pioneer Millworks/New Energy Works.
The Green Building Slam showcases ten innovative, sustainable projects, ideas or technologies aimed at bringing about foundational change in our regional building practices. The Slam presents ten fast-paced, mind-blowing talks about high performance building projects in 10-minute segments. Featuring great appetizers, drinks and good company at this celebration for Portland’s Sustainable Building Week. Join the fun and celebrate with us, at the 2018 Portland Green Building Slam on Friday, October 12th, 6:30-10 pm at the Ecotrust Conference Center.
