Municipal Green Building Conference & Expo (MGBCE)
Our 2021 theme is The Time is Now!
The unprecedented events of 2020 punctuated the urgency of the climate crisis, the pervasiveness of racial inequities and environmental injustices, the deep impacts of housing unaffordability, and the vulnerability of our societal systems to handle extreme disruptions. “The Time is Now!” is a recognition that our actions to combat climate change, while strengthening our adaptive capacity, must be immediate, must be accelerated, and must be intersectional.
The Time is Now! for Adaptation & Resilience.
The Time is Now! for Equity & Environmental Justice.
The Time is Now! for Racial Healing & Building Community Power.
The Time is Now! for a Healthy Post-COVID Future.

We are interested in proposals that showcase efforts in the categories above that lead with equity and reciprocity, build community power, consider holistic solutions to climate interventions (e.g., just transition, workforce development, etc.), and discusses approaches at different scales (buildings, neighborhoods, citywide, etc.). We highly encourage submissions that address multiple categories.

Since its inception in 2001, MGBCE has become the longest-running and largest gathering of leading sustainability and green building advocates within both the public and private sectors in Southern California.
Attended by over 1300 people in 2020, this conference and trade show provides cutting-edge thought leadership, education, and networking opportunities to inform local government agencies, building industry professionals, and the general public about the principles, practices, and products associated with green building.
This year, we expect over 1,000 attendees across two days from local government agencies, the building industry, and the public gathering to learn about green building principles, practices, and products.
Join us for our new 2nd day of the event called Community Green for the general public to learn and interact with the green building community through music, fun & family-friendly showcases and presentations, demonstrations, and virtual home and building tours!
