YOUR HOT TICKET TO A COOL EVENT
Join us for our Summer Green Scene on the Green Roof (vegetated roof) of the Atria Support Center at the Nucleus, on the J.D. Nichols Campus for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, a LEED Silver building that is part of the University of Louisville LEED portfolio.
And never fear, if the heat is too much for you, our sponsors and hosts at Atria Senior Living invite you inside to their 6th-floor Bistro, where Chef Chad Welch and crew will feature a spread unlike any we've had at a Green Scene before! Plus they will serve sparkling wines, a special Green Scene cocktail, red and white wine and soft drinks. Make sure you cool off with sorbet from their "anti-grill!"
All are welcome — members, potential members, professionals, civic leaders, legislators, business owners, sustainability students, emerging professionals in the industry for 5 or fewer years, other non-profit members, and anyone with a deep curiosity about healthy, responsible, sustainable, high-performance buildings, LEED and vegetative roofs!
Learn about Kentucky LEED projects!
Meet and mingle with LEED Accredited Professionals.
It's informal. It's informational. It's fun!
Bring a colleague. Spread the word!
