By Laura B. Smith | Staff reporterGreen spaces are a great way to capture energy, reduce CO2 emissions and protect our environment.
They’re also one of the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly ways to provide shade and shade-friendly lighting, which is crucial to keeping the lights on in our homes.
The green design community has long been a place to find inspiration for green spaces.
But how do you create a design that’s not only attractive but also eco-friendly?
In the United States, a new group of designers has been designing green spaces to meet the needs of their communities.
The Green Design Association (GDA) is a network of more than 200 design organizations that brings together design professionals, green designers, designers, artists, architects and other design professionals to share and advocate for green ideas.
The organization has been working for a decade to expand its scope to include all areas of design.
It’s an ambitious effort that will eventually include the Green Design Council, which will include Green Design Institute, a professional organization that works on a voluntary basis with design professionals.
The Green Design Alliance, a nonprofit organization that promotes design-led solutions, is also working to expand to include green spaces and green buildings in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain and the United Arab Emirates.
The green design profession in the U.S. has been struggling for decades to find its identity and purpose, but now the Green Architecture Association is hoping to help fill the void.
It has already been involved in designing green-themed art spaces in the suburbs of San Francisco and Santa Cruz, California.
The new group is calling for more diverse and sustainable design, and more green spaces in general.
“Design is a profession that is evolving and changing all the time,” said Jessica Kowal, the co-founder of the Green Art Alliance and an associate professor of urban design at the University of Arizona.
“It’s a profession, in my view, that is not necessarily about design anymore.
It is about what people are comfortable with and what they want to do with their lives.”
In an interview, Kowale said the Green Alliance is now working to work with the design profession to create a broader set of green design standards, one that would be a good fit for urban design.
The group also wants to develop a new green design standard that could be shared with design groups across the country.
The group is working with a variety of design groups, but it is particularly interested in the American Green Building Council, an organization of the architecture profession, who has been helping to define and push the boundaries of green architecture.
The council has created a set of standards to help developers design green buildings and green spaces throughout the country, but some design groups have rejected those standards.
Kowale believes that the Green Association, a group that is in its infancy, can help to help shape those standards and help guide them toward sustainability.
“The Green Architecture Alliance is just a small part of the larger Green Architecture Movement, and we want to bring together the best architects, designers and green building professionals in the country,” she said.
“Our hope is that our new standards will help make sure that everyone is creating a more sustainable design,” Kowaling said.
“We also want to make sure we are also incorporating what the Green Council has been doing in the past.”
The Green Alliance also has a number of projects in the works to support the Green Building Association’s Green Design Standard, which it says would help green building projects around the country become more sustainable.
The association says its green standards will also help architects make sure their buildings are more environmentally friendly.
The American Green Architecture Institute, the design industry’s main trade association, says the Green Standards Alliance is an important part of its mission to promote and support sustainable design.
In a statement, it says that the new group’s goals are a step in the right direction for all of us to make the world a greener place.
“While the American green architecture community has grown dramatically in recent years, many of us have been struggling with the challenge of making our buildings and spaces more energy efficient, sustainable, and attractive,” the statement said.
The statement added that “there is still a lot of work to be done in the green building industry, and the Green Architects Alliance is a valuable resource to help us make it a reality.”
The association hopes to be able to bring the standards to other cities in the next couple of years.
“I hope that we’ll be able eventually to bring our standards to a number and different countries and hopefully we’ll make them part of a national code,” Komarova said.
Komarovas hopes to bring to fruition the standards for cities and states around the world.
She said she’s hopeful that the standards could eventually be adopted by cities in other countries, including Europe, where she lives.
“This is a really big
