Deadline: Propose a Session for BuildingEnergy Boston

A sustainable future is possible for the planet and the people who live here, but only with massive, collective, urgent action. With that challenge before us, the theme of BuildingEnergy Boston 2022 is: Who’s In?

  • Who is committed to taking the urgent actions needed to curb the effects of climate change?

  • Who is the next generation of building and energy professionals?

  • And who is still missing?  Who continues to be left out of our work, and how do we bring these important voices to the table?

Learn more, including how to craft a strong proposal in line with the 2022 theme, here.

BuildingEnergy Boston 2022 will take place February 28–March 1. The deadline to submit proposals is Monday, November 1. You can use this planning sheet to prepare. Proposals will be reviewed and vetted by a volunteer NESEA-Member committee to ensure that sessions are data-driven, diverse, and genuinely useful.
