Friday is an all day, roll your sleeves up, working session in which firm leaders from throughout New England will bring their experience, techniques and strategies toward outlining how to increase the demand for sustainable architecture in our region. The group breaks out into working groups, who then report back to the conference as a whole. By the end of the day, participants will have had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with most conference participants.

By the end of the conference a preliminary outline of a Resource Document identifying priority actions, resources, and next steps will be developed that integrates much of the event’s discussion.
