The North American Passive House Network (NAPHN) today announced that the Passive House 2021 Conference: Passive House For All program schedule has been completed.
“The program encompanses a wide variety of communities and building types, reflecting the society we live in,” said NAPHN Executive Director Ken Levenson. “Passive House must not just get the energy balance right, it also needs to help optimize the human balance, in support of truly sustainable communities. When that happens we’re building climate, health and social well-being solutions. We can do it. No one should settle for anything less.”
The program is organized around the idea that Passive House should serve everyone and be accessible to everyone. Sessions feature a wide, and emerging, range of projects and intersecting interests - in use, region, climate, construction type, and audience - demonstrating that Passive House can be a core tool in making sustainable communities, more equitable living conditions, higher-skilled workers, healthy populations, and climate solutions.
“We believe the variety of featured content will be relevant to a wider audience of building industry stakeholders and the communities they serve,” continued Ken Levenson. “This program is meant to connect the dots between the potential of Passive House and everyone’s future planning.”
In addition to the program content there is an in person expo and an online expo. The online expo is on a powerful new platform this year that allows attendees and exhibitors to more readily reach out, connect, meet and exchange information, much like an in-person event.
Exhibitors include leading Passive House manufacturers, suppliers, and service providers, from NYSERDA and Rockwool to Zehnder, Swegon, Intus Windows, 475 High-Performance Building Supply, Wythe Windows, Rothoblaas, Steven Winter Associates, Mitsubishi Electric, Bright Power, Cascadia Windows & Doors, and more.
Attendees to the conference include architects, engineers, consultants, builders, developers, NGOs, policymakers, and students - all committed to making high-quality buildings that aggressively address our environmental crises. Attendees run the gamut from seasoned Passive House practitioners to the newly introduced.
The conference will run June 10-11, at 125 West 18th Street in New York City and online.
