October 23rd – 24th

The Innovation and Design Building, 19 Drydock Ave, Boston, MA 02110  

Design 4 People is the first conference of its kind that inspires, celebrates, energizes, and helps designers discover new ways to help people through design. Many years ago, the green movement began with design that protected the environment and today we are exploring how we can design for people.

Design 4 People brings design leaders together to help them understand how to improve human output within the built environment. Inspiring speakers, interactive sessions, and networking time gives attendees new ideas on how to incorporate innovative methods into projects, facilities, and design.

Tristan Roberts, HPDC’s Director of Technical and Education Programs, and Jim Newman, LEED AP, O+M; EcoDistrict AP, will present “Product Transparency and Health: From Where You Are to Where you Want to Be” during the Design 4 People conference. Tristan is a leader in the advancement of green building practices. Prior to joining HPDC in May 2018, he was part of BuildingGreen, Inc.  for eleven years, where he most recently served as Chief Strategy Officer, moderating and leading the community development of LEEDuser forum which supports over 10,000 users.
