Our Fall Sustainable Breakfast Series will feature a panel conversation on Wellness & the Built Environment.

How can we reimagine our built environment while prioritizing health, equity, and accessibility? Join us for an opportunity to learn about how intentional design and operation of our buildings can impact environmental and social wellbeing. Our panel of local experts from the architecture, engineering, and facility management fields will explore how we can respond to a rapidly changing world by creating a resilient built environment for our community.

How can we create spaces that promote environmental health and employee health? How does our built environment intersect with equity? What will it take to make a healthy building? Tips for how at the office and at home we can enhance the built environment. Join us to reflect on these subjects and more.
