The World Green Building Council’s World Green Building Week is in full swing, celebrating the efforts of Green Building Councils (GBCs) from 100 countries around the world, which in turn represent more than 27,000 organizations.

From Sept. 21-27, 2015, GBCs are taking part in events that encourage people to take direct action and make an environmental difference in their communities. This year’s theme, “Powering Positive Change,” reflects our shared mission to create sustainable built environments and encourages us to find ways of sharing our many diverse, impactful stories.

Celebrate through Green Apple Day of Service

USGBC recognizes the importance of taking direct and immediate action to implement positive change, which is why we are celebrating World Green Building Week by participating in Green Apple Days of Service across the United States, all leading up to the official Green Apple Day of Service next Saturday, Sept. 27.

Now in its fourth year, the Day of Service gives parents, teachers, students, local organizations and businesses the opportunity to transform schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments through local service projects.

There are thousands of Green Apple Day of Service projects taking place this month, and you can join us by volunteering or registering for one this week or any day of the year. There’s no better time than “right now” to implement positive change.

Don't forget to share your World Green Building Week photos, stories and more on social media using the hashtag #WGBweek. Feel free to join the discussions around Green Apple Day of Service using the hashtag #GreenAppleDay. Let’s celebrate empowerment, sustainability and change together.
