GoGreen ’12 Seattle: How To Get Your Green On This Wednesday!

Hey there Seattle GoGreeners! We’re making our way to the Emerald City this Wednesday for the third annual GoGreen Seattle and have some fun things in store for you. Read on for all the ways you can participate in the event!

  • Tweet Up A Storm
    We will be live tweeting all day from The Conference Center. We invite you to join us by adding your perspective to the dialogue via the official event hashtag: #GoGreenSEA. The more voices the merrier! If you can’t make it Wednesday, be sure to follow along online for all those juicy tidbits on how to make sustainability work for your business without sacrificing the bottom line.
  • “Pop” By!
    Drop by the GoGreen Pop-Up HUB — organized by the HUB Seattle — and take part in an organic roundtable conversation led by a certified visual facilitator. Share your ideas and learn from your peers in a open, informal atmosphere. We can’t wait to see what comes out of these idea pods!
  • Exercise Your Voice
    Write a blog post and share it with the GoGreen community. We love hearing from attendees on what they take back to their organizations and the “a-ha!” moments they experience while at the conference. If you whip up a recap or want to share a project you took on as a result of GoGreen, make sure to send us the link. We’d love to spread it out to our network of thousands of green business professionals!
  • Strike A Pose
    Snap a shot with a new or old connection in our photo booth and then look for yourself on the GoGreen Conference Facebook fanpage! We’ll be posting your next profile image shortly following the event.

We hope we’ll see you this Wednesday at GoGreen ’12 Seattle — we have a killer day of sustainability for business in store! Tickets are available online until 5pm Tuesday, April 24. Space permitting, tickets will also be available onsite the morning of Wednesday, April 25, starting at 7:30 a.m.

In 2012 we kicked off a session on emerging leaders. This isn’t your average, “how to work with Millennials” panel. We’re digging into culture shifts as new leaders take the reigns, driving the adoption of a sustainable economy in new and exciting ways. Stay tuned for more spotlights from the next generation of green leaders.  
 

Rico Quirindongo HeadshotRico Quirindongo looks at his purpose as an architect a bit differently then some might expect — he puts people first, designing structures that not only serve the needs of the community, but also allow for greater engagement with building systems. That space for engagement also sets the foundation for behavior change and culture shift that comes from emergent systems. In our Emerging Leader Spotlight, Rico tells us how we can make our buildings greener and significantly improve our communities in the process.

GoGreen Conference: Has the role of the building changed over the past 100 years? Or is it us that has changed? 

Rico Quirindongo:  It has less to do with the role of the building and more to do changing role of the design team and/or the building owner as they create and maintain a structure. What role does a building play? Continue reading
