“Snapshots on Sustainability”

LMU’s Center for Urban Resilience is highlighting the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC-LA’s) blog series, “Snapshots in Sustainability”, by Stacy Sinclair, our recent urban ecology master’s graduate.  This relevant and inspirational environmental science blog reflects Stacy’s conversations with thought-leaders in the field.   Stacy is partnering with the USGBC-LA to explore perspectives that drive decision-making on issues related to sustainability and resilience.  The USGBC is a private 501(c)3, membership-based non-profit organization that promotes sustainability in building design, construction, and operation.
