Living Building Challenge Services Director Chris Hellstern will be a panelist for “Building a Sustainable Future: Intersections of Energy, Infrastructure, Student and Community Engagement in Campus Design with Global Reach” at the Washington & Oregon Higher Education Sustainability Conference (WOHESC).

Session details:
Building a more sustainable future has many facets, from innovative building design, creating resilient infrastructure, to creating equitable and inclusive communities.

The session includes a podcast recording.
