Rebuild Green Coalition Workshop

The Rebuild Green Coalition formed out of a spontaneous outpouring of concern and desire to help our neighbors. We are green building professionals, community organizers, government and utility representatives, and others committed to helping rebuild the North Bay as sustainably and resiliently as possible. Our goal is to make it easy to choose green.

Workshop

We started with the question many were asking, "What can we do to help our neighbors and community?"  EBNet hosted a dinner and invited a number of green building professionals and community members to come and talk about it. That group put on a day-long workshop in Santa Rosa, where professionals from all aspects of green building and community partners worked up a vision for what a sustainable rebuild could be.
