Co-organized by Newtown Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA) and Centre for Science and Environment (CSE)
Date: Friday, 4 January 2013 Venue: HIDCO Conference Hall, HIDCO Bhawan, New Town, Kolkata
The Centre for Science and Environment along with the Newtown Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA) is organizing an ‘Orientation Workshop on Agenda for Sustainable Buildings' in January 2013 in New Town Kolkata.
The workshop aims at disseminating and raising awareness on various aspects related to green buildings with focus on improving their energy efficiency. At present, the city regulators are dealing with a wide gamut of regulatory tools that have some bearing on resource efficiency of the buildings. In addition the real estate growth across India including new developments like New Town Kolkata and others in West Bengal cities. is having pertinent impact on mobility, water, resource use, neighbourhoods etc. and it is only set to grow.
The workshop would entail detailed discussions on these issues amongst concerned city officials, eminent architects, green building experts and other stakeholders. This would enable CSE to highlight specific issues, concerns and way forward for the city and the state.
