    This week we had an enthusiastic kiddo, Dakota, reach out to us about a resource he was hoping to share with the Green Building Community. Dakota has been really interested in science (as of late, mostly learning more about the planet and ways to be more sustainable/green). He has been enjoying looking at new articles or pages after school. His mom did some research to find some new sites or articles for him to look through and happened to come across the Central Coast Green Building Council Green Schools page, something Dakota thoroughly enjoyed looking through!

    Dakota did some of his own research and found Bob's Solar Power Hobby Site, specifically the page 'All About Renewable Energy For Kids', and wanted to share it with us. You can now find this page linked to the resources section of the Green Schools page. Dakota, thank you for sharing! We love hearing about enthusiastic kids, and are so happy that you reached out to us! Keep up the good work!

    Green Building Mentorship Initiative Highlight - Oliver + Rudy

    Oliver, Mentee: "I joined the mentorship program looking to make professional connections and be able to learn more about the green building industry. My mentor Rudy and I have been discussing the development process and at what stages green building and LEED is incorporated into the process. I was even able to sit in on a call for the Owner's Project Requirement for a new development aiming to achieve LEED silver. My favorite aspect of the mentorship program is just having the avenue to learn so much about green building from someone who has so much experience."



    Rudy, Mentor: "Mentorship is a practiced tradition of conveying and sustaining knowledge gained from individual experience, and sharing it for another's growth. As a UCSB alumnus, I value being able to share my insights with Oliver, a fellow Gaucho, as he explores the dynamic potential that a career in sustainability has to offer. Intergenerational relationships strengthen our common goal of contributing to a more sustainable future."

    Dear CCGBC Members, Friends, and Affiliates, 
     
    The CCGBC has been keeping abreast of the unfolding events and effects of COVID-19 and we are following local, state, and federal safety recommendations to halt all in-person events until further notice. 

    As for our Green Gala, we have currently postponed it until July 25 and will update you with more information over time. If you have already registered and would like a refund, reach out to admin@ccgreenbuilding.org, however, you may also keep your registration active for when the event happens. 

    Our hopes for this year are to focus on offering and sharing more educational opportunities that support actionable change towards a more sustainable and balanced built enviornment.  One of the ways we plan to effectively cultivate these opportunities is via our Regional Councils.

    Since our region is large and consists of 3 counties, we have regional councils in SLO, SB, and Ventura which can still meet online in order to keep the momentum going!

    We will be following up and helping to facilitate this, so stay tuned if you are already a part of the councils or if you would like to join one. 

    We will hold steadfast to our intention of providing you with the resources you need to create educated actionable change in your community, and will be sharing with you all of the webinars we find -- worldwide ones even! 

    We are pleased to share the following local resources for your business needs and for the safety of your employees: SLO County Public Health DepartmentSanta Barbara Public Health Department, Ventura County Health Department, and this resource shared specifically for architects AIA Chicago COVID-19 Best Health Practices

    We wish you all health and resilience, and look forward to connecting with you soon!

    The Central Coast Green Building Council
