Green Building Tours – Team Open House and Get Together

January 30, 2020

 

The fun thing about sustainability is that it is real, and it is evident throughout NYC, sometimes right under your very nose! It is more obvious in recycling and composting centers, and centers of innovative manufacturing… and less so in subtle design elements like rain gardens, white painted roofs, and the architectural and engineering details that go into green building design. Though it is hard work to achieve requiring multidisciplinary collaboration, eventually you can see it in action.

 

The GreenHomeNYC Green Building Tours program is focused on bringing attention to the many examples of sustainability and sustainable design throughout our home city. Our team would love to meet everyone who shares this passion!

 

  • Interested in getting involved with demonstrating how sustainable design is used in practice throughout NYC? Come learn how!
  • Have location ideas for tours, or ideas on how to better serve the GreenHomeNYC community? Come share them with us!
  • Already a member of the team? Let’s catch up!
  • Can’t make it, but have ideas, thoughts, comments? Email us at tours[at]greenhomenyc.org.
