Coffee Break:
How will the pandemic influence the design of sustainable built environments?

Registration for this event has reached capacity, and is now closed. Stay tuned for future coffee breaks!

Need a break? A quick face-to-face with your green building community? New thoughts, ideas, and conversation to jump start your day?

Join USGBC-MGC for a 'Coffee Break' - a quick, lively conversation on a timely green building topic!

Our inaugural chat will take place Fri, May 15th at 10am and explore the influence the pandemic may have on the design of sustainable built environments (indoor and outdoor spaces in which we live, work and play.) Join in, share your thoughts, listen to others.
