In 2009, the World Green Building Council (WGBC) celebrated September 23 as the World Green Building Day and in 2010, WGBC expanded its celebration from a day to a week.
This year in 2012, from 17th – 21st September, we will be celebrating the World Green Building Week for the third time. This week has gained tremendous popularity in the US. Soon the other countries have joined in thee celebrations and with support from their respective Green Building Councils many events are organized to support the cause of Building Green.
