  9. 9. 2010 Program’s Educational Tracks The “tracks” for West Coast Green represent the core curriculum for the conference. On the following slide are “design principles” that represent the qualities we are looking for within all tracks. As you design your session, think about which track your session falls into and then choose one or more “design principles” that form its foundation. Building Communities 2.0 Business Opportunities and the New Economy Clean Tech and Cool Products Smart Systems Social Innovation Water & Energy
  10. 10. Design Principles
 Our educational program is designed in a non- linear fashion and relies on living systems design principles. We understand that nature is made up of neither linear nor isolated parts, but interdependent parts of a larger ecosystem network. Therefore, we have developed an “Ecotone” model for the development of educational sessions. Wikipedia defines an ecotone as, “a transition area between two adjacent ecological communities or ecosystems). This is part of our exploration of ways for developing a program that is both current and truly meets the needs of the industry. Innovative Design Advanced Knowledge Personal & Professional Stories Emerging Technology Ideas & Strategies Connecting Ideas, Skills & Resources
  11. 11. Track: Building Communities 2.0
 “Buildings are complex systems of systems--each one is a microcosm of a larger system belonging to a city, region or nation. Today, economic and political climates have converged in favor of the environment and brought an unprecedented opportunity to create a robust green building industry. Green building now spotlights retrofits and renovations of existing residential and commercial buildings as well as scalable models.” Opportunities and incentives for retrofitting – both residential and commercial Details on the ARRA Stimulus Package Science and Techniques Current Building Standards and Policy New Standards Being Formed High Performance Buildings - Global Examples
  12. 12. Track: Business Opportunities and The New Economy
 “What are the emerging business models, processes and best practices in the new economy that centers on energy conservation and independence? What’s likely to spawn maximum business opportunities and how are they going to be financed?” Capital Market Transformation Promising new Business Models Funding for Big Ideas Measuring What Matters (and managing your metrics) Marketing Sustainability in the New Economy
  13. 13. Track: Clean Tech and Cool Products
 “The power of eco tech is being increasingly realized in the built environment, from massive renewable energy projects to the small green conveniences that are making homes more efficient, comfortable, and sustainable. Explore emerging ideas in lighting, energy efficiencies, design, and the interplay of human behavior in these sessions. And join in for some coaching of budding entrepreneurs!” Venture Opportunities and Directions Innovative Building Materials and Processes Lighting Technologies How to Develop Great Ideas
  14. 14. Track: Smart Systems
 “In an increasingly instrumented, connected built-environment, opportunities are emerging to embed intelligence into systems that serve ecosystems and people. From the micro scale of buildings and the macro scale of the planet, we have both the need and the ability to network, measure, manage and control system inputs and outputs. Learn how smart systems make it possible to track our energy consumption and create behavior change.” Dashboards Buildings As Systems Design Systems Smart Grids
  15. 15. Track: Social Innovation
 “What lessons can we learn from social entrepreneurs and community-based initiatives? We’ll explore solutions for incentivizing behavior that serves the highest good within government, within companies, and within the nonprofit sector. And we’ll look at how these three sectors are coming together to create some very interesting synergies.” Philanthropy & Finance Community Development Public/ Private Partnerships Social Justice Local Initiatives & Scaling Green Jobs
  16. 16. Track: Water and Energy
 “Water and energy management and conservation is happening at the national, community and consumer levels. How do we optimize our infrastructure, management and polices to reduce consumption and associated environmental effects?” Policy, Programs & Requirements Greenhouse Gas and Climate Programs Energy Efficiency Water Efficiency Rethinking Water Consumption
