Upcoming Sustainability & Preservation Events in the East

Posted on: May 28th, 2008 by Barbara Campagna

If you're looking to participate in the Green Building/Historic Preservation dialogue this month AND collect some much needed Continuing Education credits, here are a few upcoming programs (a couple have already been posted in my previous blog).

The Preservation Maryland conference is this week in Hagerstown, Thursday and Friday, May 29th and 30th.  The Preservation New Jersey conference is next week Wednesday and Thursday, June 4th and 5th in New Brunswick, NJ.

Next week, the Cornell University Historic Preservation Planning Program, with a series of partners, will be presenting four short courses on the topic.

Presented by Cornell University Historic Preservation Planning Program & Cornell Cooperative Extension-NYC

Preservation:Sustainability - a series of four one-day shortcourses addressing a different aspect of sustainability—green building, environment, equity and economics— through the strategies, tools and ethos of historic preservation. Classes are limited in size to facilitate site visits and interaction. Courses can be taken individually.

  • 6/2 Green Preservation: Tools and Strategies for a More Sustainable Re-Use
  • 6/3 Equity: Historic Districts and Fluid Communities: The Case of Jackson Heights
  • 6/4 Economics: New Life for Vacant and Abandoned Housing: The South Bronx
  • 6/5 Rivers Lost, Resources Rediscovered: The Bronx and Sawmill Rivers

AIA continuing education units are available for this program. Each class provides 6.5 CEUs. The classes on June 2 and June 4 also provide HSW units.  $500 full program/$150 single course, government agency, non-profit, and student discounts available.
