Why Attend ECG

Virtual Tours

This year has been especially challenging we all know. Join us to take virtual tours of some of the greenest buildings in the world as part of this conference. Local projects such as the LEED Gold certified Center for Environmental and Life Sciences building on the campus of Montclair State University and Unilever's LEED Platinum corporate headquarters will be joined by international projects such as the Edge, dubbed the smartest and greenest building for virtual tours with our online guides.

Continuing Education

While many events have been canceled or postponed, the AIA-NJ Committee on the Environment knows that getting your CEUs are still necessary and important. We decided to take this conference virtual in order to continue providing this opportunity to earn CEUs to our members and affiliated organizations. East Coast Green brings together some of the most prominent regional players in sustainability, to speak on a wide variety of topics on the forefront of design. This year the conference will be offering four diverse tracks: Economy, Energy, Equity, and Meeting the 2030 challenge. Continuing Education hours will be available for both AIA and GBCI.

Virtual Networking

Our desire to be together and learn from one another has not changed, despite current circumstances. We have created a unique online conference platform that will allow you to explore a trade show area with booths, network with other conference attendees in public meeting areas, visit lecture areas, and generally participate in a full conference and trade show from the comfort of your living room. This unique experience is something we have worked very hard on and hope you enjoy. This is not just another collection of video conferneces. It is a live, virtual trade show experience. Join us!
