It’s What We Do: Creating a Culture Where Sustainable Practices Are the New Normal

Architects, engineers and builders have become increasingly effective at designing and delivering high performance buildings. Now if only we had people who were ready to live and work appropriately in these great buildings! It’s not impossible! Leveraging insights from social science you can influence human behaviors and ultimately you can facilitate a culture where saving energy and reducing waste is “just what people like us do.” Join us for a lively discussion and lots of practical examples of how you can inspire changes that ultimately create a new normal.

Flance Learning Center opened to students in June 2014, and aims to be an exemplary early
learning center, serving children of all incomes and backgrounds, six-weeks to six-years of age in a new, $11.5 million facility. The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.
