The theme for 2016 World Green Building is ‘Change Your Perspective’ an evolution of World GBC’s #BetterBuildGreen campaign. There are so many untold facts and figure that can genuinely change how people think about buildings, and specifically green building.

It’s time to change their perspective.
In support of the initiative, Swisatec and Blue Rock Village will run a campaign to educate the public on the benefits of buying a Blue Rock Village luxury apartment which is build based on European standards with fittings that have a positive impact on health and well -being, energy, the economy, emissions, and water saving systems.
