With summer winding down it is a good time to take a look at the fall conference season. There will be many events at which sustainability will be a focus. The most significant green-focused event will be the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. This year’s event will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from October 5 to 7. Greenbuild will include a trade show, many educational sessions, building tours and even a Water Summit. Author Sebastian Junger will be the plenary speaker. His recent book is entitled “Tribe.” According to Junger’s website, the book is about why tribal sentiment is such a rare and precious thing in modern society, and how the lack of it has affected us all. One month prior is the Sustainable Meetings Conference. It will be held September 15 to 16 at the Hilton Baltimore. It will be the first opportunity to experience the revamped Green Meeting Industry Council—now a part of the Convention Industry Council.
