11th Annual Passive House Northwest Conference
March 12, 2020 @ 8:00 AM - March 14, 2020 @ 5:00 PM EDT
Date: March 12-14, 2020
Where: Seattle Marriott Waterfront
Our industry needs to collaborate together in order to advance energy conservation as part of the solutions needed to face our climate emergency. We are motivated by the IPCC’s report that we have only 10 years to dramatically cut emissions in order to minimize the worst effects of climate change before irreparable harm is done.
The direction offered is that we must work together in order to combat such a daunting and almost paralyzing set of circumstances. Only together do we stand a chance of convincing the world at large that energy conservation is a proven way to combat our addiction to energy in our built environment and to reduce emission levels low enough to avoid a terrible fate.
Hope is still a possibility. There is still time to solve the climate crisis. But only as a joined community, together sharing our resources with each other against our mutual threat. There are many groups and organizations working on outreach and half-measures that will need to step up their work, and leverage it on the community’s work as a whole.
Passive House Northwest is ready for this challenge and in a great position due to the credibility our work has earned over the last ten years bringing groups together, facilitating trainings, supporting structures that nourish our industry and providing assistance to partners working to make the future the viable, carbon free environment it needs to be. We ask you to join us as partners to help transform our economy and built environment to a zero carbon world powered by renewable energy. Together We Have Time.
