The Sally Henderson Lecture on Green Design is an annual event created to honor the memory of NYSID faculty member, Sally Henderson, who developed the College's first course in green design.
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2018. With 25 years of experience in the green building industry, USGBC continues to find new ways to advance sustainability for both people and the environment.
'Arc Skoru' is a collaborative platform designed to connect people all over the world to actions and inspire them to make the most informed decisions. The new 'LEED for Cities' rating system is revolutionizing city planning, development and operations, while also improving sustainability and life for people around the world. 'Living Standard' will collect and share stories that prove that anyone has the power to make a measurable impact on the quality of life of everyone around us.
A series of short presentations will describe Arc Skoru and Living Standard along with an updated version of LEED for buildings and cities. A panel discussion will follow, addressing the impact these programs will have on the design world.
The event will feature USGBC's Gautam Tarafdar, along with LEED faculty and practitioners, Jason Kliwinski (Founder/CEO, Green Building Center, LLC, LEED Fellow and LEED Faculty member) and Jonathon Matle (LEED practitioner with Vidaris) and Dr. Vatsal Bhatt, Director for Cities and Communities. NYSID's David Bergman, Program Director for MPS-S, will moderate the panel.
