MGBCE 2021 is a virtual event–see you online!
Our 2021 theme is
The Time is Now!
The unprecedented events of 2020 punctuated the urgency of the climate crisis, the pervasiveness of racial inequities and environmental injustices, the deep impacts of housing unaffordability, and the vulnerability of our societal systems to handle extreme disruptions. “The Time is Now!” is a recognition that our actions to combat climate change, while strengthening our adaptive capacity, must be immediate, must be accelerated, and must be intersectional.
The Time is Now! for Adaptation & Resilience.
The Time is Now! for Equity & Environmental Justice.
The Time is Now! for Racial Healing & Building Community Power.
The Time is Now! for a Healthy Post-COVID Future.
Call for Submissions
We welcome you to submit your ideas and presentation abstracts for this year’s MGBCE.
We are interested in proposals that showcase efforts in the categories above that lead with equity and reciprocity, build community power, consider holistic solutions to climate interventions (e.g., just transition, workforce development, etc.), and discusses approaches at different scales (buildings, neighborhoods, citywide, etc.). We highly encourage submissions that address multiple categories.
