BBC series to explore impact of green buildings

The World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) is collaborating with BBC StoryWorks to produce a film series about sustainable buildings and construction.

The series launches later this year, and will recognise the impact buildings can have on both the quality of people’s lives and our natural environment, particularly in the mitigation of and adaption to climate change.

The aim of the series is to explore ways in which buildings can be designed, constructed and operated differently to improve global health. There will be a number of online mini-documentaries emphasising the role the built environment must play in alleviating climate change and achieving sustainable development.

It will highlight the benefits of transforming homes and buildings as part of a more sustainable built environment.

BBC StoryWorks (a division of BBC Global News) hopes the series will engage and inspire a global audience, from the 116 million unique visitors to the BBC website and through social media channels.

The WorldGBC is also asking people to share their stories and innovations as a part of the series. Please click here to read more, or email about how to get involved.
