This event is one activity of the cooperation between VJU and related partners to prepare for SATREPS project. The seminar has attracted 30 guests from JICA, ministries, departments and individuals working in the field of environment, project management and construction, Vietnam and Japan universities and institutions.
The seminar has spent most of time to discussion about the main contents: 1. Good practice obtained in Japan (and the world) especially the importance of measurement and predictions that enable society to accept the green building policy; 2. The idea to make green building action more widely promoted in Vietnam; 3. A project to promote green building activity.
Based on the discussion, it is realized that this is a hot topic in Vietnam, however there is a gap between institutional policy and practice due to lack of technology and engineering knowledge. In order to promote green building action, it is necessary to build up a network to get involve the stakeholders to solve this issue. The seminar also was the beginning of the collaboration in conducting promotion of green building impact assessment between all stakeholders.
