The Greenbuild365 website offers educational offerings, podcasts, and expanded resources

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has relaunched its popular Greenbuild365 website (http://www.greenbuild365.org/). Visitors will find increased educational offerings, podcasts, and expanded resources, along with year-round access to plenaries and master-speaker presentations from USGBC's Greenbuild Conference & Expo, the industry's largest gathering of representatives from sectors of the green-building movement.

"The building industry is changing; we are no longer designing and constructing buildings in the same way we have always done," says Peter Templeton, senior vice president of research and education, USGBC. "The green-building movement offers an unprecedented opportunity to respond to the most important challenges of our time, including global climate change, dependence on non-sustainable and expensive sources of energy, and threats to human health."

Highlights of the Greenbuild365 website include:
  • Course Catalog: Third-party-reviewed green building courses featuring USGBC's core LEED offerings, as well as courses approved by the Education Provider Program.
  • Green Bytes: Free, brief "bytes" of green-building education, consisting of case studies, best practices, and information delivered in the form of short videos, podcasts, and articles.
  • Greenbuild Conference & Expo Media Library: Videos of Greenbuild keynote speakers.
