World Green Building Week(21–25 September 2020)is World Green Building Council's annual campaign that empowers us all to deliver greener buildings and sustainable places.

This year, we're asking you to #ActOnClimate. It is a calling on the building sector, policymakers and governments to take urgent action to deliver net zero buildings by 2050. We're also calling upon for those leaders already taking action to showcase where, why and how they are achieving it. For this, in partnership with our collaborators, the week's activities include the Kenya Green Building Society Conference on Wednesday 23rd September 2020.

The World Green Building Week activities will unpack action through tree planting and growing activities every morning followed by virtual engagements to unpack how the built environment and natural environment in Kenya can respond to the climate emergency. It is time to bring these solutions to scale, and the industry is ready to deliver. The campaign to #ActOnClimate is threefold:

1. For Communities – net zero buildings support a healthier and more sustainable built environment, creating thriving and resilient communities.

2. For the Planet - buildings account for more than one-third of global carbon emissions. It's vital we prioritise net zero buildings today to protect our planet and future generations.

3. Net Zero Buildings for Economies - investing in new and existing net zero buildings today can stimulate innovation, activate supply chains and create jobs.

Expected Outcomes:·

  • Show that the built environment and construction industry is ready to act on climate: through Education and Awareness
