Preservation as a Sustainability Strategy

Preservation as a Sustainability Strategy


Often the most effective strategy for sustainability is to creatively redesign our currently existing historic housing stock. Historic preservation can contribute to all three components of sustainable development – economic, environmental and social. Heritage conservation can be effectively integrated with sustainable development to create communities that are viable, livable and equitable.

Planetizen's Preservation and Sustainability webinar will introduce participants to current theories and discussions of Preservation and Sustainability and their relationship. This course addresses a different aspect of sustainability-green building, environment, equity and economics- through the strategies, tools and ethos of historic preservation.
