World Green Building Week

World Green Building Week brings together Green Building Councils from around the world to create a public conversation about the role buildings play in our sustainable future. With dozens of countries taking part, and hundreds of events worldwide, it’s the biggest and best opportunity each year for us to shine the spotlight on our global movement. By working together in the same week all over the world, our message is louder, demonstrates our global diversity and emphasises our collective mission to create sustainable built environments.

WGBW 2016 - Change your Perspective

Each year, WorldGBC sets a theme for the week – with this year’s theme being “Change your Perspective”.

At COP21 in Paris last year, WorldGBC positioned green building as a solution to global warming through the Better Build Green campaign. The message was simple: not only had we better build green if we are to reach a two-degree world tomorrow, but we are better off today if we do. The theme for 2016 is ‘Change Your Perspective’, an evolution of Better Build Green. 

There are so many interesting and often untold facts and figures that can genuinely change how people think about buildings, and specifically green building. We need them to understand the impact and benefits that green building can have on global emissions, energy, water, health and wellbeing, the economy and beyond.It’s time to change their perspective.
