AFF Executive Director Lori Arguelles is a guest on Kojo Nnamdi Show Nov. 30

Lori Arguelles joins fellow panelists Tommy Wells, Director, D.C. Department of Energy and Environment and Patty Rose, Director, Greenspace, to discuss what it means for organizations who are “going green.” From little changes — recycling, paperless transactions — to structure-wide improvements like LEED certification, every little effort counts. But only a handful of structures in the U.S. are certified “Living Buildings” — those that meet the strictest eco-friendly building standards in the world. Now, after a decade-long construction process, a new education center in Prince George’s County is attempting to achieve “Living Building” status. Kojo learns how this net-zero energy, carbon-neutral structure came to life, and finds out how the District’s own plans for supergreen affordable homes and sustainable buildings could impact residents and the environment.  Listen to the recording
