Educate yourself!

October 24, 2011

During a recent Green Careers meeting, a new member of our group asked a very important question: how does one stay abreast of green building news and policy developments? In a fast-growing industry, it’s good to know what’s going on and who the experts are. So we in the Green Careers group decided to put together a list of a few web resources that you might find helpful as you consider a transition into a career in green building. Remember, this is just a place to start and the list is not at all exhaustive. If you have any other suggestions for websites you read regularly, please post them in the comments below.
