‘Orientation Workshop on Agenda for Sustainable Buildings in Lucknow'
Co-organized by Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) and Centre for Science and Environment (CSE)
Date: December 20, 2012 Venue: Lucknow
The Centre for Science and Environment along with the Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) is organizing an ‘Orientation Workshop on Agenda for Sustainable Buildings' in December 2012 in Lucknow.
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 now 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 capital cities like Lucknow and others in Uttar Pradesh like Kanpur, Noida, Agra, Varanasi etc. 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 city officials, eminent architects, green building experts and other stakeholders. This would enable CSE to highlight specific issues, concerns and way forward for the state.
The workshop is expected to be attended by representatives from the LDA, other related departments and agencies. A few eminent private architects and energy auditors etc. would also be participating in the workshop.
Centre for Science and Environment’s Sustainable Buildings Programme is organizing 5 day training on Green buildings. The programme aims to enable participants to adopt a common sense approach to green buildings, one that blends traditional wisdom with modern science.
