We just wrapped up a successful 2014 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. At the GAF booth and on Twitter we asked: “How are you leading the green building movement?” On the show floor, we had a wall where visitors could write their thoughts and ideas. Here’s what leaders of the green building movement, architects and students who stopped by had to say.
