Sustainable Buildings Community Workshop

Hosted by the City of Austin Office of Sustainability –

Join the City’s Office of Sustainability to give your input on Sustainable Buildings in Austin!

The Office of Sustainability is in the process of updating Austin’s Community Climate Plan. As part of that process, we’re talking with community members to understand their goals, barriers, hopes, and dreams when it comes to reducing our community carbon footprint.

One the many potential solutions to the climate crisis is to move towards low or no-carbon buildings. In this workshop, we are seeking input to understand what you think about green building design in Austin.

At this workshop, you will:

  • Provide input and feedback about how to achieve our community’s goal of reducing at least as many global warming emissions as we create by 2050.
  • Discuss highlights and areas of growth in green building design and access.
  • Help identify priorities and equitable strategies to reduce carbon emissions and improve the state of the buildings we live, work and congregate in.

Refreshments and childcare:

Food and drinks will be provided, and supervised child activities will be available for kids age 3 and up.

More details:

This is one of five different workshops that coincide with the five advisory groups working on the Climate Plan Update: Transportation Electrification, Transportation and Land Use, Sustainable Buildings, Consumption of Goods, and Natural Systems.

The overall goal of the Climate Plan is to identify tangible and quantifiable actions that local government, big business, and community members can undertake in the next 5-10 years that will help reach our community’s goal of reducing at least as many global warming emissions as we create by 2050.
