WorldBeat Center LEED Plaque Ceremony at EarthFair

WorldBeat Center, Balboa Park

The San Diego Green Building Council and WorldBeat Center are celebrating the achievement of LEED Silver Certification at the WorldBeat Center on Sunday, April 21 in conjunction with Balboa Park EarthFair.

As part of a Park wide greening effort, WorldBeat was the first building to participate in the San Diego Green Building Council’s Green Assistance Program, which is a project-based education program that rallies local green building interest and expertise in partnership with a local non-profit that desires to green their building and operations. Through this program, a team of volunteers conducted a LEED feasibility assessment for the WorldBeat Center building and then provided support through implementation of sustainable strategies and pursuit of LEED certification.

This celebration recognizes the commitment of more than 40 dedicated volunteers, Balboa Park Cultural Partnership and WorldBeat staff, who collaborated to reduce environmental impacts and operating expenses while creating a space that is more comfortable for occupants. View full event details here.
