Buildings consume vast amounts of our natural resources and contribute highly to climate change. 17% of Canada's emissions come from residential commercial and institutional buildings, making this an important area of opportunity to reduce greenhouse gas. When we build it must be with green intent. Zahra Ebrahim explains why participatory design might reveal innovations we’ve not yet thought about. Fin Macdonald talks LEED and gives us a sneak peek at renewable strategy in the building sector. And, Leslie Woo looks at the built environment with a lens we might not have considered.
