WorldGBC launches Building Perspective interview series

Watch the first episode of Building Perspective with Julie Hirigoyen, Chief Executive of UK Green Building Council (UKGBC).

“In our sector, we need courage. Courage to push the boundaries further and faster, to be prepared to be unpopular with some of the things we are calling for and to challenge the status quo.” — Julie Hirigoyen, Chief Executive, UKGBC

WorldGBC has launched a new interview series to spotlight inspiring sustainable built environment leaders from around the world. Hosted by Cristina Gamboa, CEO, WorldGBC, the conversations showcase global sustainability leadership in the built environment, as well as the human stories behind the success.

In our first episode, Julie Hirigoyen shares her unique building perspective on front-of-mind issues for GBCs, leadership qualities and the once-in-a lifetime opportunity presented by the pandemic to catalyse change.

The Building Perspective series will run monthly throughout 2021. Subscribe to the series.
