Greenbuild 2012 - Call for Legacy Project Proposals

Greenbuild 2012 - Call for Legacy Project Proposals

As many of you know the 2012 Green Build Conference and Expo will descend upon the city of San Francisco in November of this year and is looking to repeat the success they have been having with their Legacy Project in cities across the country. The Legacy Project will provide seed funding to create a permanent gift to the host city, as a means of service, education, and thanks to the local community where the conference is held.

  The obje Currently this grant is primarily being advertised on the Norcal USGBC website and it may not reach a wider distribution of participants that the committee is trying to access. Therefore subcommittee members such as myself are also reaching out to grassroots organizations, city agencies and underserved communities who may be able to benefit from a gift such as this.

While the USGBC addresses social responsibility within its mission statement the majority of its efforts often appear to be geared towards environmental solutions for improving our quality of life. It seems prudent then to support  efforts on their part to frame the sustainability agenda as one where environmental, social and economic sustainability are an equal part of the answer. The hope is that the Legacy Project will provide a long lasting gift to a community in need that embodies this holistic approach to creating a healthy society.

I've truly been involved with computers in general and in particular networking for a very long time. I realize it may sound pretty lame, but talking about stuff such as USB to Ethernet converters is still something I enjoy and I love helping people with their technical problems.

Avoid being excessively hungry or developing unnecessary cravings by eating five or six smaller meals instead of three large meals. Eating a light snack or small portions spaced throughout the day can speed up your metabolism. As a result, you can burn more fat and maintain your energy level during the day.

Every woman is different. If you're having difficulty with your feminine walk, visit a park or social space in which women congregate, and find walking habits that will work well with your particular body type.

The book explores the definition, use, role, and importance of public space for the exercise of demoncratic rights to free expression. Hou shifts the emphasis from physical space to citizen action. We need to focus not just on ensuring the right to public assembly, he writes, but also on "the making and mobilization of the public as an actively engaged citizenry." It is this that "enables a public space to remain public and continue to serve as vehicle -- a building block -- of our participatory democracy."
