Plan a Green Meeting

The time for talk is over

Green design should be a goal for everyone to leave a greener footprint for future generations, starting today. That's what our Walk the Walk campaign is all about.

AIA Community Service/Legacy Program

The AIA Legacy Events program was developed to promote sustainability and a legacy in the cities we visit. The AIA and American Institute of Architecture Students are working jointly to promote team-building and a dedication to leave a city better than it was before we arrived. Through volunteer activities we hope to create a lasting memory for architects, architectural students, and the general public.

Green Meeting Tips

Before you throw your jack-o-lanterns and decorative gourds in the trash can, consider this frightful fact: the seeds from pumpkins germinate in landfills and the pumpkin vines create significant problems when composting trash. Instead, consider more environmentally friendly alternatives for recycling your Halloween and autumn decor: Chop up your pumpkin and burry it in your garden. Pumpkins are biodegradable and easily break down in the Earth's soil; Compost the pumpkin. Pumpkins can do wonders for soil, but make sure to remove the seeds before sending it to the compost; Recycle it as a plant potter. Arrange flowers and other greenery in the top of your pumpkin to use as table decor; Discard it in a forest or woodsy area. Insects and animals, like squirrels and deer, will naturally break the pumpkin down by making a snack of it.
