Tonight, I'll be welcoming Cesar Tapia with the San Diego Chapter of the USGBC and the Gap Project.

Balboa Park will soon become an example of Sustainability through a partnership with the San Diego Chapter of the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council), and their Green Assistance Program.

EBOM (Existing Building, Operation and Maintenece) is a LEED Certification program that recognizes sustainable practices for buildings already constructed, and in this case, 100 year old museums!

With not-for-profit organizations such as the BPCP (Balboa Park Cultural Partnership) and The Friends of Balboa Park, coordination can be a challenge, and Cesar is here to talk about his role and what exactly it takes to certify an existing building.

Sustainability - Think: Environmental Responsibility, Economic Viability, and Social Accountability.
