Event description

Description

Health is a longstanding value of the green building movement. Green buildings exist to create superior environments for the current generation while preserving resources for future generations. However, opportunities to promote specific aspects of individual, community and global health vary in scope throughout the LEED rating system. This workshop will introduce green building practitioners to an intentional health promotion process meant to maximize the health promotion potential of LEED.

In this workshop, researchers from the University of Virginia School of Medicine and the U.S. Green Building Council will provide attendees with an introduction to the LEED v4 BDC Integrative Process for Health Promotion and guide participants through an interactive application of this process to a sample building project. The LEED Integrative Process for Health Promotion involves 1) engaging key stakeholders, 2) understanding population health needs, 3) prioritizing strategies according to needs, and 4) monitoring impact.

During this session, LEED practitioners will learn how to engage new health-oriented stakeholders and data sources to establish explicit population health goals and guide application of the LEED rating system to meet these goals. Presenters will share examples and best practices from the application of this process within a variety of settings including affordable housing, school, healthcare and office.

Attendees will earn 3 GBCI CEUs for the following specialties: LEED AP BD+C and LEED Green Associate.
