In California, a hotspot for heat stress, addressing climate change demands resilient communities and infrastructure. This event gathers leaders to discuss actions needed for adaptation, including enhanced worker training by USGBC California. By equipping construction professionals with climate-resilient strategies, we fortify buildings against extreme heat, advancing towards a carbon-neutral, climate-resilient future.
