Researching triggers for pro-environmental everyday behaviour
The key aim of the Build4People exhibition „Green Building and Sustainable Neighbourhoods” is to raise awareness by reaching out to a wide public.
Thereby, the exhibition with 32 posters in A1-Format provides information with easy-to-understand language and a focus on graphic visualisation and many photos.
The main target group for this exhibition are the general public, but also architects, construction and engineering companies, developer enterprises and students / lecturers from institutions of higher education.
In Phnom Penh highly dynamic urbanisation is giving rise to more resource-intensive lifestyles, going along with new values and life concepts being formed, with new aspirations and new possibilities are set into place.
Therefore, the development towards a modern consumer society in urban Cambodia strongly affects the way buildings are designed, built and operated.
All in all, the potential to promote climate-adapted architecture, energy efficient buildings and sustainable neighbourhoods is far from exhausted.
Implementing green buildings and sustainable neighbourhoods will reduce energy costs – which are the among the highest in the region – but it will also contribute to an overall higher urban quality of life through increased thermal comfort, better access to urban green, improved indoor and outdoor air quality.
