Green Design + Human Health + Social Equity

Where are the intersections of health and sustainability? This lecture delves into two LEED pilot credits that are built upon access to physical activity and nutrition. Exercise is medicine, as agreed by medical and health professionals globally. The built environment is a key part of promoting exercise.
A new pilot credit called “Design for Active Occupants” will demonstrate ways to expend human energy rather than fossil fuel through active design. Urban Agriculture reduces food miles traveled, increases resiliency and improves nutrition. The “Local Food Production” pilot credit was also launched in 2013.
Included in the presentation are three new social equity credits launched since Greenbuild 2014 to augment how green buildings positively impact communities.
