"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Nelson Mandela

Three Education Approaches

USGBC Florida is all about education. We focus on three approaches to green-building education:

  1. Increase awareness about green building and sustainability. By increasing awareness with building owners, the general public, decision makers, principals, facility managers, etc., we increase demand for green building and sustainable practices.
  2. Supply green-building education to the community. By directly educating what is green building and how to do it to building professionals and the industry at large, we are able to meld demand with knowledgeable green talent and successful projects. By supplying green-building education to the general public, we empower homeowners and customers to ask the right questions to obtain the product and outcome they want, expect and deserve.
  3. Transform the market with policy advancement. By combining education, market-based tools and incentives, we advance the market toward a more sustainable future.
