The campaign's focus this year is on residential green building and change - what steps can each of us take to start or continue  chanigng our habits and reducing the 40% of global energy everyone in a dwelling is consuming.  And those who have figured it all out can help by sharing stories and experiences and helping to educate the rest of us.  According to the WorldGBC, "We can all do our bit, however small  you start.  You can save energy and money, create a healthier space to live in and make the planet a greener, better, safer home for generations to come. It’s easy when you know how.
