Wake Up Palestine – Steps Towards Sustainability

Jerusalem24– In mid-2011, the Palestine Green Building Council (PGBC) was founded to lead the Palestinian construction industry, to develop and implement innovative green building projects.

According to the PGBC the growth in the Palestinian real estate sector is hitting new records, and it is highly expected that this sector is going to expand even more as a result of high population growth. Palestine has limited natural resources with limited access, while needs are rapidly growing.

In their journey to develop an environmental culture in the construction industry in Palestine, the PGBC organized the Steps Towards Sustainability Conference.

Stretching itself over two events, a conference and an exhibition, the conference brought about like-minded individuals interested in green building. The former discussed ways to take steps toward sustainable construction, while the exhibition showcased sustainable projects already in existence in Palestine.

In this episode of Wake Up Palestine, Haneen Shareef, the coordinator for the Steps Towards Sustainability Conference, talks about the events that took place and the importance of green building construction.
