Cleveland 2030 District

WHAT: The Cleveland 2030 District is a Sustainable Cleveland 2019 working group dedicated to creating “2030 Districts” throughout the Greater Cleveland region. A “2030 District” is a high-performance building district—a geographical area in which our organization will work to encourage, facilitate and measure the reduction of energy, water usage and CO2 emissions generated from building operations and construction following the blueprint of the Architecture 2030 Challenge for Planning, which was issued to the global building and planning community in 2008 and which expands upon the widely adopted 2030 Challenge, issued by Architecture 2030 in 2006.

The Cleveland 2030 District Start-Up seeks to develop the Cleveland 2030 District into a fully-funded non-profit organization tasked with the creation of several high-performance building districts throughout Greater Cleveland.

Keynote Speaker: Ed Mazria, founder and CEO, Architecture 2030. Edward Mazria is an internationally recognized architect, author, educator and visionary with a long and distinguished career.
