DC Preservation League

The DC Preservation League was launched on Earth Day in 1971, declaring from its inception that a healthy and vibrant community cannot be sustained without conscientious stewardship of its social, economic, and environmental resources. For fifty years, DCPL has been unwavering in its support for equitable and sustainable stewardship of the District of Columbia’s diverse heritage and culture. Now, as collective concerns about climate change reach peak levels, DCPL is launching its Stewardship for Climate Action program, curated by consulting architect Carl Elefante, FAIA, FAPT, LEED AP.  Through this six-part series of half-day programs, DCPL and program participants will explore how preservation of DC’s existing building stock can help accomplish the goals set forth in the DC Climate Action Plan.

In this second of six programs in the DCPL’s Stewardship for Climate Action Series, attendees will have an opportunity to learn about Climate Change issues directly affecting the District and how the government is working with tools like the Sustainable DC Plan and the Comprehensive Plan to address them. Energy efficiency in the built environment, especially how it relates to historic buildings, will also be addressed. Featured speakers represent both DC’s Department of Energy and the Environment and the Office of Planning. Free and Open to the Public. American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Credits are available.

Speakers include:

Katie Bergfeld, DC Department of Energy & Environment

Carl Elefante, FAIA, Quinn Evans

Rogelio Flores, DC Office of Planning

Stephen Gyor, DC Office of Planning

Imania Price, DC Office of Planning

Casey Studhalter, Department of Energy & Environment
