Case study presentations will highlight ways that affordable housing project teams have overcome regulatory, financial, and other barriers to integrate renewable energy, deep energy and water savings, healthy materials, and other regenerative technologies and solutions into their projects.

Participatory discussion based activities will focus on ways to apply these and other strategies to your own affordable housing projects. As a participant, you will walk away with new connections to colleagues and ideas for action, resources, and tools for reaching higher levels of health and sustainability on your projects.
