Happy “World Green Building Day”

World Green Building CouncilToday is the second annual “World Green Building Day!”  The World Green Building Council has set aside this past week as “World Green Building Week,” and green building councils around the globe have been celebrating with special events designed to raise the profile of green buildings.  The World Council kicked off the week with the release of a Special Report entitled “Tackling Global Climate Change – Meeting Local Priorities.”

Countries around the world are celebrating with special events.  Australia will be throwing a Green Tie Gala in Sydney, Canada is having a three-day green design expo, and the U.S. Green Building Council is launching a major subway campaign.  The campaign will advertise the benefits of living and working in a green building, and will reach over 32 million people on their way to Capitol Hill.

So today, celebrate your green building, if you are lucky enough to be in one.  If not, take the time to learn more about them and then spread the word!  Happy GBD!
