Sara Cultural Centre showcased at Build Better Now during COP26

Carbon negative Sara Cultural Centre is one of 17 sustainable projects worldwide that have been selected to be part of the Build Better Now virtual exhibition, organised by WorldGBC, UKGBC and over 100 partner organisations at COP26 in Glasgow.

COP26 is the UN’s 26th climate summit and will be the biggest since Paris 2015. The climate summit begins on 31 October and runs for two weeks. The VR exhibition Build Better Now runs parallel to the climate summit and serve as a global call for climate action.

By featuring 17 of the world’s most innovative projects that demonstrate the potential of sustainable construction and pave the way for a sustainable future, the exhibition showcases the urgent role that buildings and cities can play as a solution to the climate and ecological emergency. The hope is to support the industry in creating more sustainable buildings, places, and cities in the future. Visit Sara Cultural Centre’s exhibition booth here.

Sara Cultural Centre has received great international attention for its pioneering architecture. We are honored that Sara Cultural Centre was selected as an innovative example to inspire more sustainable construction.
Robert Schmitz and Oskar Norelius, Lead Architects

The 17 projects were selected by an international jury, comprising 15 industry leaders from across the world, for making an immediate positive impact on the planet and people’s lives.

The built environment plays a key role in the climate crisis, globally buildings consume over a third of the energy produced and account for 40 per cent of global energy-related carbon emissions. Built environment takes centre stage at COP26 with at dedicated day for advancing climate action on buildings and cities.

With COP26 in November, the world is ready to tackle climate change and the built environment has a crucial role to play. We know why we need to accelerate climate action and Build Better Now shows how we can get there.
Julie Hirigoyen, Chief Executive of the UK Green Building Council

Alongside the exhibition, Build Better Now will host a series of events with a programme that includes tours and talks, keynotes, panel discussions and other content that is free for all to download. The idea is to educate and inspire industry and the public to act now, to identify and deliver climate solutions at scale.
