GBE Launches Green Building Learning Programme

Construction News Image
A Green building learning programme has been launched by GBE (Green Building Encyclopaedia) Learning.

A series of webinars, workshops and green building visits will start on March 06 2020. There will also be a learning archive, the ability to earn CPD (Continuous Professional Development) hours and social media interaction with the expert Presenters.

Since the arrival of Greta Thunberg and her behaviour change campaign, public awareness of the issues surrounding climate change and biodiversity loss have never been higher. Founder Brian Murphy BSc Dip Arch (Hons+Dist) commented: "Local authorities, universities, architects, homeowners, construction and property professionals, self-builders and the public at large are crying out for easily accessible green building know-how. In 2020, there is more focus, intention to learn and a flood of green building questions looking for answers."
