Growing Green Awards March 28

Growing Green Awards

Keynote: “Using Design For Change”

Designer, architect, builder, author and teacher Emily Pilloton will headline USGBC-Missouri Gateway’s fifth annual Growing Green Awards celebration on March 28 at the Palladium.

An industrial designer on paper and high school teacher in practice, Pilloton began a bold immersive experiment in an impoverished rural North Carolina county to prove educational challenges can be conquered with design solutions. After living half the year on the east coast and other half in San Francisco, she decided to move to North Carolina to fully invest in working with students by teaching design for change.

Growing Green Award attendees will hear Pilloton explain how intersecting design and public education can nourish life, empower communities and transform public education. She will describe how they successfully put this philosophy into practice and enlivened a rural community.

The Missouri Gateway Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council sponsors the Annual Growing Green Awards celebration from 5:30 – 9:30 PM on March 28 to honor individuals, companies and organizations that are making a difference in green building locally. See the list of nominees below. One winner in each category will be announced on March 28. The celebration includes cocktails, networking, dinner, dessert, keynoter and on-site parking. The community is invited to attend the gala and advanced reservations are essential.
