The Stanford Building Decarbonization Learning Accelerator

Teaching tools for university and college educators to prepare the next generation of building professionals.


What is the BDLA?

Users can access case studies, slide decks, videos, exercises, reading materials and other resources to seamlessly build decarbonization into their existing courses about sustainable buildings, or create a brand new course focused on this topic.


Building decarbonization is the single most important paradigm shift in construction since the introduction of LED lighting or the LEED rating system.  Teaching is the key to unlocking this transformation.
