GB Hack

A one-day event to overhaul the green building workforce, accelerate access to affordable green buildings, and have a damn good time!


After confirming a host, we recruit 5-10 community-building organizations to submit upcoming LEED-registered projects to receive free consulting and support.


Then, teams are built with participating Professionals, Students, and Experts who will support and learn on these LEED-registered building projects.


And together, over one day, we HACK* local green projects to LEED certification, while providing critical education to participating developing professionals.


“The act of engaging in activities in a spirit of playfulness and exploring the limits of what is possible, thereby doing something exciting and meaningful.”

Our vision is to host Hack-a-thons all over the world – but for now, we’ve got to start small and focus on demand. Thus, help us choose the best region/city/campus to host our next HACK event.
