The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announced Aug. 29 that former President Bill Clinton will deliver the keynote address at the opening plenary of Greenbuild, the largest conference and expo dedicated to green building, to be held Nov. 7 to Nov. 9 in Chicago.

His address is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. “This is an unprecedented opportunity for our green building community to hear from one of the greatest philanthropic and environmental leaders of this century,” said USGBC President and CEO Rick Fedrizzi. “The William J. Clinton Foundation is facilitating a series of global action plans that are addressing some of the most intractable problems of our times -- AIDS, economic sustainability as a way to eradicate poverty, the elimination of childhood obesity. His framework has shown the power that groups of individuals have to effect real change.”

Clinton’s keynote will kickoff what is expected to be the largest Greenbuild ever. More than 20,000 attendees from all over the world will take part in three days of speakers and educational sessions, LEED workshops, hands-on training, local green building design tours and exhibit hall events. Greenbuild’s exhibit hall sold out nearly a year in advance—its 800 booths will display the newest green technologies, products and services.

PS%%s unique ability to inspire individual action will add incredible momentum to this important work.”
