Green Building Council South Africa's ninth Green Building Convention will take place in Johannesburg from 26-29 July 2016 at the Sandton Convention Centre.
Brian Wilkinson, CEO of GBCSA
Commenting on the convention’s new Sandton Central setting, Brian Wilkinson, CEO of GBCSA, says: “We’re expecting bumper delegate numbers. Global research shows South Africa has the largest percentage of green building projects under way in the world, and most of these are in Gauteng. Naturally, industry demand has driven our decision to bring the Green Building Convention to Joburg.”
‘Build a better world NOW’ is the theme of the convention in 2016, which will aim to stimulate awareness, ambition and action to design, build and operate better buildings.
“This year, the event brings together industry leaders with the experience and ideas to generate solutions - some outrageous and some exquisite in their simplicity but all revolutionary in their power to affect positive change and Build a Better World NOW,” says Wilkinson.
GBCSA has also announced a compelling trio of keynote addresses. Headlining the event are Dr Ian McCallum, the author of Ecological Intelligence and a world authority on the interface between humans and the natural world; John Elkington, the "advisor from the future", who is an international expert on the impact of business on profits, people and the planet; and Paul Clements-Hunt who is a development finance strategist and a global advocate of clean capitalism, value-based infrastructure and sustainability.
Broadcaster and property professional Kura Chihota will again be the master of ceremonies at the Green Building Convention 2016.
