I have been a supporter of LEED and USGBC but want to take it further. I teach High School Home Building and we are adding Plumbing, HVAC and Electrical to our existing courses of Home Building (carpentry), welding, Painting and Drywall. We need to do more than let students know more than "this " is coming. We need students to get beyond the basics to work with the issues and options of LEED designs and apply the theory to their real world projects. For that to be implemented I will need help and training. And you are the organization I will turn to.

Mahesh: USGBC/ LEED/ Green Building have always been voluntary and more recently, has even been proven profitable to building owners... so why would we feel discouraged? The whole of the USGBC foundation is based on proactive volunteerism. I am trying to understand how the current leadership is not for equality, opportunity, diversity, or acceptance as you imply. If I were in such a role, I would feel this to be a gloomy, divisive and negative article. Even the supreme leader of our nation was seeking certifications on buildings prior to his current role. Most lead by words, but he leads by action. I suggest we follow his example and do the same. PS. We are also building sustainable churches!

I read this as USGBC response to current white house threat to exit the Paris agreement and efforts to dismantle EPA regulations.

Thank-you for the uplifting article on community-building and the reminder that both communities and history are made by people. I look forward to sharing it with other people in my communities.
Well written USGBC! The message's positive tone stands in sharp contrast to the divisive and angry rhetoric that is so prevalent everywhere else right now. Additional kudos for placing the ad in publications that reach audiences that are not often exposed to USGBC's messages.
