On Wednesday Sightline’s fearless leader Alan Durning will be speaking at Seattle Town Hall with the CEO of Cascadia Region Green Building Council, Jason McLennan. The title of the seminar is “Exploring energy and design: smart solutions for the built environment.” Here’s a blurb:

As the prospect of global economic crisis hits home, there is hope. The work being done to combat climate change through smart community design, green building and energy research gives communities the opportunity to respond to economic crisis with common sense solutions. This seminar will highlight work being done right here in our backyard, and explain what needs to be done in the future to ensure the sustainability of our region.
