Advocating for a better built environment

Through our member events, training and education programmes as well as our advocacy platforms we lay critical foundations for the green economy.

The Kenya Green Building Society works in collaboration with its membership community, sponsors and extended network of professionals to inspire a built environment in which people and planet thrive. We advocate solutions and tools that enable the design, construction and operation of all buildings in an environmentally responsible way. Working in the public, private and residential sectors, our vision is for all Kenyans to live, work and play in a healthy and efficient urban built environment.

Ongoing Advocacy Programs

GREEN SCHOOLS

Green Apple is a global movement to have all children in schools where they have clean and healthy air to breathe, where energy and resources are conserved, and where they can be inspired to dream of a brighter future. The focus of Green Apple is to promote sustainable schools that practice, teach, and support environmentally responsible choices. It intends to advocate and ensure schools demonstrate commitment to the environment. The International Green Apple Day of Service is marked as a day when students, teachers, parents, green building councils and entire communities come together in support of healthy, sustainable schools by taking real action in their communities. Last year nearly 50 countries reported holding Green Apple Day events.

Education is a fundamental aspect of every society across the world. In schools, we find the next generation of leaders who will ultimately be responsible for putting green ideas into practice hence the need to help students acquire a basic appreciation on the importance of protecting the environment and acquire skills to be good stewards of the environment. Schools should also be places that are conducive to learning–places that are healthy, safe, engaging and comfortable. Yet many schools lack the resources or necessary information needed to provide a supportive environment.

The Power of Volunteers

The Green Apple Day of Service initiative is purely a voluntary effort; it relies on the goodwill of individuals and communities. It provides communities with the opportunity to show their commitment to improving their local schools by giving individuals, parents, teachers, students, companies and organizations the opportunity to transform schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments through local projects.

WGBC GLOBAL PROJECTS & PARTNERSHIP

Green Building Councils have shared interests and encounter similar challenges and opportunities, and the World Green Building Council's global projects and partnerships enable us to connect and collaborate so we can achieve results faster and more effectively. In a world where businesses increasingly operate globally, collaboration by Green Building Councils also helps the building sector deliver more green buildings around the world.
