People create change – thanks for being a part of it


As we come to the end of this extraordinary year, I want to thank everyone in the Network for their incredible work and commitment.

Working together with local partners, we have achieved a lot: establishing the HIDUP coalition to develop a policy plan for low-carbon housing in Indonesia, a tool for implementing the residential energy code in affordable housing in India, finding the next generation policy innovators through Pitch to Policy competition.

We know changing building policy doesn’t happen without the right people working together, and there is still so much to do. But as Margaret Mead’s famous quote says: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

I wish you and your families a happy, healthy and peaceful new year and look forward to a brighter 2021 together.
