This event will be recorded
Come join the conversation about sustainability in Ann Arbor as the City and the Ann Arbor District Library host their annual Sustainable Ann Arbor series.
The series will include four events (held monthly and ending in April) with each focusing on a different element of sustainability from Ann Arbor’s sustainability framework (www.a2gov.org/sustainability).
The first event in this series centers on Sustainable Buildings and includes a discussion of how to increase efficiency of new and existing building and projects underway in the community.
A think tank of local stakeholders including representatives from community organizations, staff from both the City of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County will join the public to discuss local sustainability efforts and challenges in our community. Each program will include a series of short presentations followed by a question and answer session.
The forums offer an opportunity to learn more about sustainability in the community and tips for actions that residents can take to live more sustainably.
Speakers for the Sustainable Building discussion include:
• Christopher Taylor, Mayor, City of Ann Arbor
• John Beeson, Architect, Resident, and Commissioner for the Ann Arbor Historic District Commission
• Jason Bing, Healthy Buildings Director, Ecology Center
• Nate Geisler, Energy Programs Analyst, City of Ann Arbor
• Knox Cameron, Principal Marketing Specialist Residential Programs - Energy Efficiency, DTE Energy
