Andrea Traber to Speak at 2018 Greenbuild

Greenbuild International Conference and Expo is the face-to-face experience for sustainability in the built environment. It’s for professionals in architecture, construction, engineering, planning, and interior design who depend on thoughtful and ethical solutions which promote wellness and resiliency in construction and urban development.

The theme for Greenbuild 2018 is Human x Nature | The Intersection of Humanity & The Built Environment. The green building movement embraces all of humanity by making sustainable buildings and environments accessible to everyone, and in doing so, benefits the natural environment all around us. We are helping people understand their role in protecting and preserving the natural environment and leveraging the built environment.

Integral Group is proud to be represented by Senior Principal Andréa Traber, as a presenter in the session:

Resilience Session 3: Making it Real | Community Resilience

Innovating Equitable Processes: Lessons Learned from Resilient by Design | Tuesday, November 13, 2018 | 2:00pm – 4:00pm

Resilience is complicated. It considers the increasing environmental vulnerabilities as well as the economic and social challenges we see every day.

How do we, as leaders in our communities, make a real difference? How do we build a team that is accountable and committed to the vision of a resilient community?

In this session, you will hear stories of people pushing the envelope: two Puerto Rican stories about recovery after Hurricane Maria (a grassroots and government perspective), a story about the new trend of community resilience hubs, and a story about the economics of resilience in low-status communities. With this inspiration, we will brainstorm ideas for a real community (charrette style).

While the goal is to provide actionable strategies with potential contacts to this community, you should be able to walk away from this session with “real” strategies to take home and make a “reality.” As a resource to session participants (aka resilience advocates), the USGBC will publish the status of resilient strategies implemented in the real community. This will foster an online community of resilience advocates to discuss challenges and triumphs in their own community.

Note: This session is part of the Resilience track within CAHS. You are encouraged to select the other sessions within this track, though it is not required.
