Last Call to Join Thursday's Webinar Exploring Home Healthiness

11 to 11:40 a.m. Thursday, May 21
Free Online Webinar via Zoom

Green building has come a long way in its evolution toward design, construction and operation practices that reduce or eliminate negative impacts and can create positive impacts on our climate and natural environment. However, an often-overlooked factor is home healthiness. How healthy is the environment a person calls "home?"

This 40-minute webinar presentation with Q&A led by Green Built Alliance member Rick Bayless, president and founder of A Healthier Home LLC, will discuss environmental sensitivities that can be inside the home. For example, did you know an estimated 25 percent of the population live with environmental sensitivity that is adversely impacted by environmental stressors?

We'll explore "sick home syndrome" and how it can be addressed in existing and new homes. We'll review the new focus on being in our homes 24/7, and consider how, going forward, we can collaborate on sharing solutions and educating the public with the goal of high energy-efficient homes that are also healthy functional homes.
