For many organizations, “going green” can mean little changes — recycling, paperless transactions — to structure-wide improvements like LEED certification.

Now, after a decade-long construction process, a new education center in Prince George’s County qualifies as a “Living Building.” Kojo learns how this net-zero energy, carbon-neutral structure came to life, and finds out how the District’s own plans for supergreen affordable homes and sustainable buildings could impact residents and the environment.
