7 Things to do and see at Greenbuild 2015
In a few short weeks, leaders, experts and frontline professionals in the green building community will converge on Washington, DC for Greenbuild 2015.
Workshops and networking are only the tip of what Greenbuild offers attendees. There will be lots to see and to do both at the conference and in the city.
Here are 7 different things to do and see at Greenbuild 2015 in Washington, DC.
1. Catch a flick
The Ninth Annual Greenbuild International Film Festival will be held Wednesday, Nov. 18 - Thursday, Nov. 19 10:00am - 5:00pm. It features documentaries, films, and informational videos that promote innovative green building practices.
2. Go out for a bite. Or two. Or three.
Whether it’s dinner with colleagues or clients, you’ve come to the right city. The food scene in DC has become quite the smorgasbord of world cuisine. The Washington Post has a list of 40 restaurants to get you started.
3. Research — with your feet
Sure, you can research green buildings by holing up in your hotel room reading. Or, you can learn about sustainable buildings and neighborhoods by joining one of the many Greenbuild tours. “Greenbuild tours will help attendees learn outside the convention center walls and present the best of the area’s sustainable buildings and neighborhoods.”
4. Take in the sights
A trip to Washington, DC isn’t complete without a visit to one of the many iconic monuments. Did you know that BASF MasterSeal products are a part of the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool and the National Museum of the American Indian? We are quite proud of that.
5. Women in Green Power Breakfast
The fourth annual Women in Green Power Breakfast takes place on November 19. This year, the impact of gender on mentorships will be discussed.
6. Stop to smell the roses
Washington, DC has many museums, but in keeping with sustainability and green building, a trip to the United States Botanic Garden would be appropriate. The living plant museum works to inform visitors about “the importance, and often irreplaceable value, of plants to the well-being of humans and to earth's fragile ecosystems.”
7. Come say hi
Be sure to drop-by the BASF booth (#2137) where we will have experts on hand to discuss your green building projects and challenges. BASF will also be at the Materials and Human Health Summit at Greenbuild on November 17. You can find out more here.
