Former president Barack Obama will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Greenbuild International Conference and Expo by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The event will take place November 19 to 22 in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Georgia World Congress Center.
“USGBC is deeply honored that President Obama has accepted our invitation to speak at Greenbuild 2019,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president of USGBC. “President Obama is a global leader and a longtime friend of the green building community. While in office, his administration negotiated the landmark Paris Climate Accords, expanded the impact of our field, and helped open the door for energy efficiency investments in both the public and private sectors.”
Greenbuild 2019 features four days of networking, educational sessions, green building tours, keynote events, and an expo floor.
