Monthly Technical Workshops

As an educational technical platform Emirates Green Building Council hosts monthly Technical Workshops dedicated to capacity building of the UAE’s green building industry. The workshops are facilitated by EmiratesGBC Technical Officers and industry experts and are designed as an interactive forum for members and partners to share challenges, best practices and lessons learned.

A new workshop is offered each month which covers topics based on the latest news, regulations, innovations and technologies around the green building industry.

Discussions are summarized into briefs that are compiled on a yearly basis and shared on the EmiratesGBC website. Click on the links below to view past Workshop Briefs:
