Session on Sustainable Building Education
September 28 PM

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.

Concluding remarks

IPCC and Sustainable Buildings Session
September 28 PM

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 were introduced, and through the collaborative discussions between experts from IPCC and on Sustainable Building, trying 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
