HOW "GREEN" IS IT?

  
  An important part of Design Coalition Institute's mission is developing and disseminating   information to assist civic, neighborhood, tribal, and local government groups with the planning,
  design, and construction of "Green" homes, facilities, neighborhoods, and communities.
  We invite anyone to view, download, and disseminate the materials on this website, 
  including the materials described below, which will give newcomers a sense of what our
  team means when we talk about "Green."


  If you would like assistance organizing a "Green Communities" event in your community,
