World Green Building Week

WorldGBC and its member Green Building Councils celebrated the inaugural World Green Building Day on Sept. 23, 2009, to raise the profile of green buildings globally in the lead up to COP15 in Copenhagen. The day was shaped by a series of synchronized events hosted by GBCs around the world, including the official launch of the Asia-Pacific Regional Network.

Drawing on the success of last year's celebration, WorldGBC has extended this year's event to "World Green Building Week'" (Sept. 20-26). Key activities for this year include the launch of the WorldGBC Special Report "Tackling Global Climate Change - Meeting Local Priorities" and a series of synchronized green building events hosted by Green Building Councils from around the World.

The WorldGBC Special Report will be available for download from its website on Sept. 20, the first day of World Green Building Week.
