The World Green Building Council is pleased to announce a partnership with BBC StoryWorks to deliver a landmark film series, says Cristina Gamboa, CEO, World Green Building Council.

“The WorldGBC is proud to work in partnership with BBC Storyworks to communicate our shared vision for a green and sustainable built environment to a wide global audience. We look forward to sharing this opportunity with our diverse network of members and partners to ensure we convey the opportunities and challenges from the building and construction industry, and its integral role in securing worldwide zero carbon targets and sustainable development goals,” she says.

Buildings have a profound effect on the quality of people’s lives. The aim of this series is to explore ways in which we can design, construct and operate buildings differently to improve our health, and the health of our planet. The series will seek to show the path to a built environment fit for the future.

The series will bring to screen building projects from across the globe, charting the innovative ways in which organisations are turning rhetoric into action when it comes to healthy and sustainable buildings. The project aims to galvanise the sector to work collaboratively, aligning stakeholders, and creating the right incentives and support for change.

Simon Shelley, Global Director of Partnerships at BBC Global News says, “We’re excited to embark on the production of a powerful series that will show what buildings are really made of, and why the way in which we use and re-use buildings has such an impact on the environment and the health of society.”

The series will launch in late 2020 as part of multi-channel campaign including audiences across the globe and social amplification to targeted groups.
