SEATTLE, WA -- Building professionals and others interested in environmentally responsible design and construction practices will have the opportunity to hear from two of the biggest names in green building on October 2: architect Eric Corey Freed and building science expert Mark LaLiberte. From the convenience of any computer, people can participate in free online webinars at www.GreenExpo365.com with Freed, LaLiberte and others to be announced. Visitors to the GreenExpo365 website that day also can interact in real-time with leading building product manufacturers in a virtual tradeshow format.
Details for the Tuesday, October 2 free webinars are as follows (times to be announced):
Eric Corey Freed, Principal of organicArchitect and leading green building author
"Attack of the Dodo Sapiens: Innovative Models for Sustainable Development"
In this session, Freed will discuss a heavy topic with his usual humor, unique perspectives and practical tips - exploring how the human race's current way of living is killing us, and offering ideas on better ways to design buildings and cities, borrowing from history, biomimicry and case studies.
Mark LaLiberte, building science researcher, educator and author
"Solutions to Top Five Worries about Getting Back to Building."
LaLiberte will share ideas on what homebuilders and architects need to know to be successful as the housing market begins to improve. He will discuss how green features are now expected standards among homebuyers and building officials, and how to prepare for new green building requirements.
"Eric and Mark are two of our most popular presenters," said Scott Donnelly of GreenExpo365. "They know how to challenge the building industry's thinking in clever and interesting ways, while providing practical information to help others be successful. Their passion for green building is clear."
In addition to the webinars and virtual tradeshow on October 2, visitors to GreenExpo365 on that day - and any other day - can read informative and amusing green building blogs from a range of commenters such as Jerry Yudelson and view any of more than 100 on-demand educational webinars (most of which are registered with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for continuing education credit). Visitors can also read and comment on provocative original articles, such as "A fastball right down the green plate," which discusses what the green building industry can learn from baseball to be more successful.
