Grab your laptop or tablet and join AIA Chicago & the US General Service Administration to learn how to play Green the Building!  This in-person workshop starts with an overview and introduction of  the GSA's SFTool and its companion game, Green the Building. Participants will play the game on their own wifi enabled tablet or laptop to meet target scores. Game play will be punctuated by brief table and whole group discussions about challenges, tactics, lessons learned and a short post-game survey. The session will end with a debrief about the use of games as effective learning tools.

How it works:
Green the Building places you in the role of Team Lead, charged with greening buildings through strategic Energy, Waste, Water, and Occupant Satisfaction improvements given a limited budget.

Make tough choices from among action cards that include: Lighting, HVAC, Water, Workplace, Practices, and Bundles.
Face random events, including extreme temperature change and employee turnover, that challenge your ability to plan ahead.
