The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and Informa Connect announced that the 2021 Greenbuild International Conference + Expo will feature an exclusive conversation with Dan Levy. He will take the main stage at Greenbuild on Sept. 22 at 12:15 p.m. pacific at the San Diego Convention Center.
Greenbuild will take place virtually and in person in San Diego Sept. 21-23 and is the premier event for green building professionals — architects, interior designers, urban planners, manufacturers and others. The conference also includes a wide variety of interactive and collaborative education sessions, a dynamic show floor featuring sustainable building innovations, and a wide range of peer networking and industry recognition events.
Levy is an Emmy and SAG winning writer, actor, director, and producer, best known for his work on the television series "Schitt’s Creek," which he co-created with his father Eugene Levy. For its sixth and final season, the series received nine Emmy wins, becoming the most awarded comedy series in a single year. "Schitt’s Creek" has garnered nearly three dozen awards and nearly 100 nominations.
Levy began his television career co-hosting MTV Canada’s flagship show MTV Live and later co-wrote, co-hosted, and co-produced the critically acclaimed ratings hit "The After Show." Levy also co-hosted the hit CBC series, "The Great Canadian Baking Show." In 2019, Levy signed a multi-year overall deal with Disney’s ABC Studios to develop and produce scripted projects for the studio. Levy starred alongside Bette Midler, Kaitlyn Dever, Sarah Paulson, and Issa Rae in Jay Roach's "Coastal Elites" for HBO.
Levy also appeared in the romantic comedy "Happiest Season" for Hulu and made his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live in early 2021. He is currently working on his animated comedy series, "Standing By," for Hulu and has a number of TV and film projects currently in development.
USGBC Greenbuild sessions will focus on topics such as LEED Zero, Arc, LEED for Cities, ESG and decarbonization, and include a LEED v4.1 workshop. The USGBC team will be on hand at booth #5107 in the expo hall to answer questions on membership, LEED, Arc, education, credentialing, advocacy and more.
The USGBC booth will also house the GBCI Certification Work Zone, where project teams and others can get help with LEED and GBCI projects, meet one-on-one with GBCI reviewers and discuss GBCI’s full suite of certification and credentialing offerings.
