Acclaimed filmmaker and explorer James Cameron will serve as opening-plenary speaker for the 2015 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, which will be held Nov. 18-20 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
Cameron, a director, writer, and producer responsible for some of the most memorable films of the last three decades, including “The Terminator,” “Aliens,” “The Abyss,” “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” “True Lies,” “Titanic,” and “Avatar,” has led expeditions to some of the deepest ocean trenches in the world and is passionately involved in sustainability issues.
The opening plenary, which will be moderated by author, journalist, and MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski, will focus on what is needed to get meaningful action on climate change leading up to the United Nations COP21 Climate Negotiations in Paris this December.
“Many of the world’s largest economies are gearing up for the United Nations climate negotiations this December, and Greenbuild is the perfect opportunity to engage the green-building community around these conversations to reduce waste and carbon emissions while simultaneously improving health and well-being,” Kate Hurst, vice president, community, conferences, and events, U.S. Green Building Council, said. “James Cameron and Mika Brzezinski’s experience and viewpoints will make for a dynamic discussion around these important issues.”
