FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Jan. 30, 2012 - Nineteen architects convened in Ho Chi Minh City’s Energy Conservation Center (ECC) last December 17 to 20, 2011 for the Green Building pilot training of Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) under the International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) initiative Energy Efficiency Training Product and Trainer Development.

The event sought to develop the learning materials that can be used by Vietnam-based builders in designing Green structures.
