Some of the best things about Greenbuild—and there are many—are the educational programs. Covering topics from energy labeling and building innovation to removing embodied carbon from the water supply—there really is something for everyone. The opening plenary which took place this morning, featured General Colin Powell and the closing Plenary on Friday will feature the Honorable Shaun Donovan and Paul Hawken.

A few of the other notable presenters, educators, and speakers include Arlene Blum, Founder and Executive Director of the Green Science Policy Institute (who is also on the Environmental Building NewsAdvisory Committee); Henry Cisneros former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and the current Executive Chairman of Cityview; and of course our very own Peter Yost, Tristan Roberts, Alex Wilson, and Nadav Malin.
