We are the New Orleans affliate of Global Green USA. Global Green USA is working to address some of the greatest challenges facing humanity. In the United States our work is primarily focused on stemming global climate change by creating green buildings and cities. Internationally, Global Green and its affiliates are working toward: •Eliminating weapons of mass destruction that threaten lives and the environment •Providing clean, safe drinking water for the 2.4 billion people who lack access to clean water
After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and the inadequate response of the US Government, Global Green USA made a dedicated commitment to sustainable building in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. Through our green affordable housing community the Holy Cross Project, and our work on greening schools throughout the area, Global Green is committed to creating a green model for development and rebuilding for New Orleans; educating NOLA residents, the Gulf Coast and broader American public about the benefits of green building; and advancing smart solutions to global warming that both benefit communities and engage stakeholders in building will for action.
