Upcoming SBM Events

November 4, 2020
  • Whole Life Carbon Footprint and True Zero Carbon Buildings

    November 4, 2020  12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    Everyone in the building sector can become climate champions by working to make the built environment the planet's sixth major carbon sink.
    How can we quickly and realistically make buildings into carbon storage mediums?
    Chris Magwood is obsessed with helping reverse climate change by making carbon-storing buildings that are also healthy, beautiful, efficient and inspiring.
    Chris is currently the executive director of The Endeavour Centre, a not-for-profit sustainable building school in Peterborough, Ontario. The school runs a full-time certificate program – Sustainable Building and Design – and hosts dozens of hands-on workshops annually.
    In 2019, he helped to establish Builders for Climate Action, which will be rolling out a set of tools and policy options to help governments, designers and builders reverse climate change with their buildings.
    Chris has authored seven books on sustainable building, including Essential Sustainable Home Design (2017). He is co-editor of the Sustainable Building Essentials series from New Society Publishers, and is currently working on a new book: Beyond Zero: Architecture to Cool the Planet. He completed an MA at Trent University in 2019. His thesis, Opportunities for Carbon Removal and Storage in Building Materials was published in the fall of 2019.
    Join to learn carbon accounting and leverage all your projects to try to get to net zero carbon, or better.

  • Heating Without Fossil Fuels

    December 3, 2020  12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    How can we make buildings that contribute to climate solutions instead of burning fossil fuels?
    The IPCC report tells us that we have to stop burning fossil fuels, but that is easier said than done when natural gas is the main way buildings are heated and you live in one of the coldest places on the planet.
    Join a panel of experts to hear how it is that we can overcome this major hurdle and help make our buildings part of the climate change solution.
    Learn about the multiple benefits of addressing energy efficiency in buildings rather than only focusing on fuel switching.
    Learn more about the Efficiency Manitoba programs available for natural gas heated buildings.
