Over the next 20 years, American's will demolish one third of their existing building stock (over 82 billion square feet) in order to replace seemingly inefficient buildings with energy efficient "green" buildings - a trend no different in Canada. The hour-long documentary "The Greenest Building" poses the question "Is demolition in the name of sustainability really the best use of natural, social, and economic resources? Or, like the urban renewal programs of the 1960's, is this well-intentioned planning with devastating environmental and cultural consequences?"
After the one hour film, some excellent Calgary examples of energy efficient buildings upgrades will be introduced with brief presentations & discussion.
