Next week’s OCSL (Omega Center for Sustainable Living) conference is turning out to be one of the most power-packed sustainability meetings of 2013. Headlining the event are speakers like former President Bill Clinton, economist and author Jeremy Rifkin, Professor David Orr (who I’ve waved at from my seat at the Feve a few times over the years) and an old friend of Cleantechnica, Paul Hawken.

For those of you unfamiliar with the OCSL, the project’s centerpiece is an actual building that’s designed to be entirely self-sustaining. The building itself uses a number of clever design features to generate solar power, cool the structure, and more. The organizers behind the OCSL conference hope to use the building as a talking point to educate builders, designers, and architects on ways to design good-looking structures that are more “in tune” with their environments. That’s evident in the group’s stated mission …

Omega Center Mission

“Through innovative educational experiences that awaken the best in the human spirit, Omega provides hope and healing for individuals and society.”

… and through the renderings and diagrams of the OCSL shown, below, which were provided to the press as a whole by the Omega Center’s architects when the project was first announced. The conference will be held October 4-6th, with tickets starting at $275. If you’re in the New York area, you should definitely check it out!
