CBT Celebrates Green Month

This April CBT celebrates sustainable design with our annual Green Month, this year with a focus on carbon. Programming throughout the month will feature a series of carbon-themed educational events which will explore the impact of carbon on the environment and best practices in architectural design to slash carbon emissions. Events include presentations and panels by sustainable design leaders and experts, as well as a virtual happy hour plant night where participants can play biophilic trivia while creating living works of art!
