Building Positive Movement Podcast

The Building Positive Movement (BPM) exists to highlight the challenges and opportunities in creating sustainable buildings, transportation, industry, clothing, music, and lifestyle in the San Diego and Southern California region. We are a group of volunteers focused on supporting regenerative ideas, technologies and processes.

We are creating podcast conversations with leaders in regenerative buildings.
