  • The African Climate Alliance, various allied organisations, the Cape Town youth, and many ordinary South African citizens will join millions of people around the world on the 24th September 2021 in support of the Global Climate Strike by gathering in front of Parliament calling for urgent action on climate change and ecological breakdown.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
