The mission of the Delaware Valley Green Building Council (DVGBC) is to advance and promote sustainable and environmentally responsible planning, design, construction and operation of the region’s buildings, landscapes, cities and communities, mindful of the legacy left for future generations.
Each year, the DVGBC conducts a Sustainable Design Competition to engage students from regional colleges and universities. Professors are encouraged to incorporate the Design Competition with the Spring 2010 college and university curriculum. This year the DVGBC would also like to invite young professionals to enter the competition. Integrated with the LEED Green Building Rating System, the Design Competition unites students and young professionals with esteemed individuals from the DVGBC and the local design community. The goal is to incorporate sustainable design strategies into the college curriculum and empower the students and young professionals within the green building movement to become future leaders.
The competition will award a number of cash prizes as well as a grand prize stipend to attend Greenbuild, the USGBC’s annual Green Building Conference and Expo (www.greenbuildexpo.org). Greenbuild 2010 will be held in Chicago.
