Systems Thinking for Resilient Homes, Communities and Organizations

This session will explore the use of systems thinking to accelerate decarbonization in homes and organizations. Through a case study of a single family property being redeveloped as a Passive House infill project, we will illustrate how the design and construction process can leverage the developer’s needs and available incentives. This session is appropriate for the emerging professional in building science as well as the experienced practitioner who wants to level up their impact.
