SB04 Regional Conferences Session
Tue., September 27 14:30-17:30Room 1-C

 

This session will focus on assessment of buildings and their environmental pergformance and discuss case studies and results achieved by environmental assessment tools. In this session, all the conveners of SB04 Regional Conferences will present a summary on the state of sustainable construction in their regions.

The content will cover the following issues, relevant to your region, but preferably extending to a country-specific level:

-
The current status of sustainable building and construction (SBC);
-
Climatic. cultural and other factors, and the institutional, regulatory and human resources;
-
Specific issues and barriers to improvement;
-
Ways in which international organizations might assist in accelerating movement towards SBC;
-
An action agenda

Session on Sustainable Building Education
Wed., September 28 15:30 - 18:30 Room 1-C

Intent Education is key to ensuring that design professionals remain current on environmental and sustainability issues and enable them to offer effective service and leadership in these areas. In a rapidly changing and evolving field, the importance of remaining current has never been more acute. The intent of this session meant to initiate an international dialogue between educators and practitioners to further understand how sustainability issues can be infused within both post-secondary and professional continuing education programs, and equally importantly to identify international similarities and differences.

IPCC and Sustainable Buildings Session
Wed., September 28 15:30 - 18:30 Room 1-C

Human-induced global warming and anthropogenic climate change for many centuries has been suggested by the assessment carried out by IPCC, which has brought significant influence on the policies of the environment, energy and economy all over the world. The IPCC Working Group III is charged with assessing options, including building sector initiatives for limiting greenhouse gas emissions and otherwise mitigating climate change.

In this session, the IPCC's latest findings will be introduced, and through the collaborative discussions between experts from IPCC and on Sustainable Building, we will try to clarify the roles and opportunities of Sustainable Buildings in the long-term scenarios of global warming and mitigation strategies.

Chairs: Mark Levine, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, United States of America
  Hiroshi Yoshino, Tohoku University, Japan
