The Retrofit Game - Play Now!

Very cool and fun idea from Autodesk.

As the eyes of the environmental world focus on Copenhagen this week there is a lot of chatter about environmental stewardship and sustainability. Yet, far too many people are not aware of who some of the biggest culprits are. What if more people knew that buildings are the leading cause of green house gas emissions? What if more people were aware of the enormous opportunities that exist to improve our buildings to make them greener? Regardless of what is accomplished at Copenhagen, all of us can take it upon ourselves to do one simple thing - spread the word!

Autodesk Inc, created
RETROFITS for this very purpose: to raise awareness about the benefits of greener, more sustainable buildings. The on-line game – part quiz show and part fast finger action - is the core of the program. Everyone from industry professionals to teachers, parents and students can take part in this entertaining challenge to create a greener, more sustainable building while learning a few things along the way.

See if you can make the leader board, then share it with your friends! There is also a short video and an animated banner free for distribution to all of your social networks.

Our goal is to spread the word about sustainable buildings and you can help!
