GBCSA convention 2014
The annual Green Building Council of South Africa’s convention is an event that brings together the commercial property, sustainability and green building industry. This year’s theme is “It’s time for Africa, bringing it home”. It makes sense that bringing it home will explore the innovation and vibrance that comes from our continent as a counter to scarcity.
The convention is multi-faceted with an exhibition, keynote speakers, a brainwave stage, building tours, the green leadership awards and represents a dynamic networking opportunity. The range of activities means in-depth learning and broad experiences which is a rare feat.
Simply put, the aim of the GBCSA convention is to strike a balance between providing:
- Inspiration on the broader subject of sustainability
- Delivery of practical tools to deliver change on the ground
- Providing impetus to transforming the built environment towards environmental sustainability within the African region
- Knowledge transfer from local to global and global to local
- Providing a platform for business-to-business networking opportunities
- And showcasing the latest green building technologies, trends and innovation
GREEN STAR LEADERSHIP AWARDS
We recognise that our mission to lead the transformation of the South African property industry to environmental sustainability is ambitious, but are encouraged by the bold leadership demonstrated by our industry. The Green Star Leadership Awards aim to recognise and commend market leaders on the transformation of the South African commercial property sector. The deadline for all submissions and nominations is Friday, 22 August 2014. (Details are available on the convention page.)
This stage is in the exhibition hall and all talks are limited to 10 minutes. Inspired by TED talks the ideas shared on this platform are worth sharing on the green and sustainability agenda. If you have something you would like to share please submit a proposal to us and we will get back to you. Deadline for submissions is Friday, 1 August 2014. (Details are available on the convention page.)
