Worldwide, fewer than ten buildings have been fully certified as living buildings. Speakers include Senator Stanley Rosenberg, Representative Ellen Story, Acting Commissioner Dan Burgess of the MA Department of Energy Resources, Jonathan Lash, President of Hampshire College and other community representatives.
