Today marks the first day of the 2nd annual World Green Building Week. The World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) highlights current and future happenings of the world's green building industry by hosting meetings and events in countries around the world. This week is the result of a very successful World Green Building Day on September 23rd last year, which was a series of events hosted by Green Building Council's around the world, including the official launch of the Asia-Pacific Regional Network.
This year some of the highlights are expected to include the launch of the WorldGBC Special Report "Tackling Global Climate Change - Meeting Local Priorities" and once again a series of synchronized green building events hosted by Green Building Councils from around the World. These scheduled conferences, galas, festivals, lectures and business meetings will address the importance of green buildings and the role of architecture in promoting environmentally sustainable lifestyles.
Several countries are participating in this year's events including the United Kingdom, Colombia, Indonesia, Morocco, Philippines, Poland, Russia, and Singapore.
