Aotearoa, and the rest of the world, is facing two substantial challenges. We need an effective economic stimulus, and we need to slash our climate pollution.

These challenges will not be solved unless healthy, less polluting places for people are put at the heart of the solutions.

This is the most important time ever for the building and construction sector in Aotearoa.

Our sector has a key role to play in tackling era-defining problems. That’s what makes this year’s World Green Building Week so vital.

Join thousands of New Zealanders this September as we celebrate World Green Building Week with a series of thought provoking events.

We’ll be hosting a series of panel discussions tackling the big issues. Can a shovel-ready approach ever truly solve fundamental problems?

Can the financial services industry be a catalyst for change? How can we fully realise the enormous potential for social and green procurement?

Join thousands of people in Aotearoa this September for World Green Building Week. More details to come so check back in to find out more.

If you'd like to organise your own activity, feel free to use these creative resources to help liven up your message. And don't forget to tag @NZGBC, and #ActOnClimate #WGBW2020
