NeoCon: Zero Carbon Buildings by Carbon Based Lifeforms
June 10, 2019 at 9:30 am - 10:30 am UTC-5
NeoCon is celebrating it’s 50th year! Every year design professionals gather at The Mart in Chicago to share and discuss industry innovations, ideas, and introductions that shape the built environment. This year’s event will take place June 10-12.
Session Overview – Zero Carbon Buildings by Carbon Based Lifeforms
In the last decade, carbon levels accelerated, the population swelled, global temperature rose and our urban population grew. All these factors mean the world will be a very different place by 2030. In this seminar, we’ll explore dozens of disparate trends in technology, sustainability and the construction industry, connecting the dots to get a glimpse into how we can save both the world and our businesses. Participants will learn how to stack emerging trends to forecast opportunities in the green building space. Climate change is redefining the design parameters and project demands for building design. During this energetic and entertaining session, we’ll acknowledge the challenges and complexities facing project teams pursuing net zero / zero carbon projects, as well as how to identify the risks amplified over and above.
