Following their successful first Greening Historic Communities Symposium on “Green Historic Preservation: What Works, What Doesn’t, What Should Change” in January 2010 in Indianapolis, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is headed to Delaware to facilitate discussion on green preservation in the context of Northeast historic communities.
As part of a broader EPA initiative looking at historic preservation and green building technology, this symposium will explore:
- Issues relevant to the Northeast region, as well as national successes and lessons;
- Infrastructure and policy framework that communities need to promote and encourage sustainable preservation; and
- Ways to minimize conflict and create synergies between stakeholder groups.
The symposium will target subject matter experts, leaders, and decision makers, such as mayors, planners, architects, preservationists, federal and local government organizations, developers, and green building experts. Through group exercises, attendees will have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with each other and potentially affect policy on a local and national level.
Location: Hotel duPont, Wilmington, Delaware
Dates: June 15‐16, 2011
Registration is required and will close when spaces are filled.
