Build It Green Welcomes New Executive Director, Jeremy Madsen
"Jeremy’s expertise with guiding diverse coalitions in finding common ground will be a strong asset as BIG works to address the environmental and social crises facing the housing ecosystem.”- Karen Kho, Board President
Madsen takes the helm as Build It Green is advancing a new strategic direction grounded in inclusivity, community engagement and collaboration. BIG is in the process of convening coalitions that are delving into possibilities at different scales — from smaller homes known as accessory dwelling units to regenerative design approaches that can improve lives at the neighborhood scale.
"In the broad community that makes up the housing ecosystem — from architects and builders to policymakers and advocates — more and more of us are recognizing the potential to shift from merely avoiding and neutralizing negative impacts to using development as a regenerative tool for both people and planet."- Jeremy Madsen, Executive Director
