Making a Difference in the Spaces Where We Live, Work, Learn, Heal and Play

If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it is how closely our personal and planetary environments are connected. Never has it been more important to ensure the spaces around us contribute to healthy people and a healthy planet.

In this series sponsored by Armstrong World Industries, we'll explore trends and new practices in the pursuit of sustainable, innovative solutions for spaces.
