The buildings where we live and spend our time have major impacts on the natural environment and on people’s health. Leslie works with architects and builders to teach them how to create buildings that are kind to the environment and provide healthy and inspiring spaces for us to live and learn.

This series of sustainability career webinars is offered at a 6th grade level of vocabulary. They are intended for K-12 students, and are open to any age. These informational interviews are intended to expose students to the variety of jobs available in the field. After the adult describes a normal day at their job, what they love about their job, its challenges and what it took to get there for about 15 minutes, the dialogue becomes open to student Q & A. Chatham students are welcome to attend, but please allow K-12 students to have the priority for asking questions, and please try to also keep vocabulary at a 6th grade level to help make the workshop age inclusive.
