It is our great pleasure to announce the 2nd annual ACT-SO Sustainable Building Competition during the NAACP 112th Annual National Convention, hosted by the NAACP Centering Equity in the Sustainable Building Sector (CESBS) Initiative and ACT-SO.

Sustainable building regenerates, advances, and sustains the social, cultural, economic, and environmental health of place and community. Given how buildings influence our lives, communities, ecosystems, and the climate, the NAACP sees sustainable building as a human and civil rights issue.

Participating teams will demonstrate their knowledge of sustainable and equitable architectural design by developing a proposal based on a real development project in Charlotte, NC. The proposal will consist of a concept and design for mixed-use redevelopment of a historic building in the West End, according to a mock Request for Proposals (RFP). To learn more, please read the Competition Procedures and Protocols.

All interested NAACP units must complete the registration form before the deadline of 5 pm Pacific Time / 8 pm Eastern Time on April 19, 2021. Your registration will be confirmed by email by NAACP National staff with additional details in coming weeks.

Questions can be directed to CESBS Program Manager Mandy Lee ([email protected]).
