World Green Building Week urges us to Change our Perspective

by | Sep 27, 2016 | Featured Slider, Latest, News

World Green Building Week, the flagship event of the global green building movement, takes place from 26 September until 2 October 2016. The week raises awareness of green buildings around the world, highlighting how they are the most effective means to achieving a range of environmental, social and economic goals, from addressing climate change to creating sustainable homes, businesses and communities – better places for people to live, work and play.

Organised by the World Green Building Council and led by its network of 74 Green Building Councils and their 27,000 member companies, raises global awareness through the World GBC’s #BetterBuildGreen social media campaign and localised events in each country.

We’d love you to join the GBCSA in one or all of the following ways:

Get busy on social media by sharing our ‘Change your Perspective’ campaign.
Designed to present interesting, bite sized facts that can genuinely change how people think about buildings and specifically green buildings, the graphic-driven campaign quotes interesting snippets on the benefits that green building can have on global emissions, energy, water, health and wellbeing, the economy and beyond. Tagging the GBCSA (@GBCSA), the World GBC (@WGBC) or using the hashtags #WGBW16 and #BetterBuildGreen will ensure that you are part of the global movement to build better and greener. More information and suggested tweets are available here

Share great photo’s of your favourite green buildings on social media in our international ‘Change your Perspective’ photographic competition. More information on the competition can be viewedhere.
