MSFAU – Faculty of Architecture initiated the wider debate of sustainable green planning and development processes in the country by organising the first International GREENAGE Conference in December 2010. In April 2012, this major awareness raising event is to take place with a new ‘green economy’ aspect of the process in focus.   Both green planning and development is essential to accommodate population growth and to deliver sustainable liveability. In order to create greener communities, changes will need to be made to existing land use regulations, design guidelines, construction standards, and more. Thus, this major event intends to bring together academics and the representatives of the key sectors.
