4th Annual GAM Green Forum

In cooperation with the National Museum, the Museum Foundation, and Holcim Philippines, Inc., the Green Architecture Movement (GAM) of the United Architects of the Philippines, a prime mover on Green Architecture in design and construction, is holding it's fourth Green Forum on 16 June 2007, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, at the 4 th floor of the Museum of the Filipino People, Tambunting Villonco Hall, Finance Road Manila.

True to its objective, GAM continues to seek ways and means to advocate green principles in any development. In line with the Building Modernity Exhibit, GAM's forum entitled "Sustainable Design of Philippine Tourism", aims to provide information on the current needs of grass-root entrepreneurship or small to medium scale developments in eco-tourism.

GAM feels that eco-tourism must be emphasized in the advance and use of potential tourist destinations without harming our fragile environment. Sustainability, implementation, management and optimum responsiveness to end-users' are key requirements for green developments. This means minimal site disturbance and careful resource management by the community to preserve the local ecology. Thus, speakers in the forum will come from different design, engineering and implementing sectors.

Green architecture involves design that is environmentally sensitive, in harmony with the natural features of the site, energy efficient and utilizes materials that are produced by environmentally responsible companies, are indigenous and/or recyclable. GAM began as a committee in the year 2000, as a result of the continuing advocacy on environmental awareness brought about by the United Conference on Environment (UNCED) or the Earth Summit. The Committee on Green Architecture was later changed to what is now the Green Architecture Movement.

With the 4th Annual Green Forum, the movement hopes to provide significant insights to implementers of tourism projects such as government agencies, private developers, architects, engineers and other allied professions, in producing sustainable and responsive eco-tourism facilities.
