On 02 March 2023, the German Build4People team got invited for lunch at the residence of the German ambassador in the Royal Kingdom of Cambodia, Stephan Messerer.
The lunch event was joined by Dr. Heike Bauer, coordinator of the BMBF Funding Priority SURE (Sustainable Development of Urban Regions), representing the DLR Project Management Agency (funding Agency on behalf of the German Ministry of Education and Research, BMBF) and Dr. Stephan Anders, Director Network & Consulting of the German Society for Sustainable Building (DGNB) and member of the Build4People Scientific Advisory Board.

In the further course of the lunch, the Stephan Messerer introduced about the German cooperation approaches with the Royal Kingdom of Cambodia and entered a discussion about sustainability challenges with various Build4People team members.
