Green Building Convention in South Africa Attracts Top Minds on Climate Change

Five internationally acclaimed leaders on sustainability will headline this year’s trailblazing Green Building Conference in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa from 26 to 28 July 2016.

The Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) hosts the event and CEO Brian Wilkinson says the keynote speakers – Dr Ian McCallum, John Elkington, Paul Clements-Hunt, Mario Molina, Jeff Speck, Terri Wills and Evan Rice, will share their unique expertise to guide Africa and the world towards a thriving future for all.

“We know time is not on our side. Climate scientists have told us this is the decade to take decisive action. Small steps won’t get us where we need to go. Now is the time for bold leadership focused on purpose and on collaborative communities and cities, and it’s time for innovative and disruptive technology. We have to unite with one common purpose – to build a better world now, so we have chosen this as the theme for the 2016 convention,” says Wilkinson.
