Although this course is part 1 of possible series of other coming parts, the material presented was very basic, some of the facts related to benefits of building green were not relevant to Saudi or that region. However, the basic facts about the status of green in Saudi were good and the video on green schools was very good too.
This course can be valuable if some environmental and natural resource facts related to that region added. For example, why building green in Saudi? What is the status of water as natural resource? What is the Saudi buildings carbon footprint? Etc.

This course provides some facts about the Green Building Movement and LEED projects in Saudi Arabia in terms of number of projects registered and percentages. and provides an introduction to Saudi Green. However, it would be interesting to see specific information about the Green Building Experience in Saudi Arabia. And to highlight percentages of savings with regards to energy, water, materials.

This presentation is the first part of a two-part series, focusing on the key concepts, strategies and vision for green building in Saudi Arabia and primarily focuses on the key concepts of green building, with some insight into current facts specific to the region. Second half of the presentation offers a basic overview of the LEED system, with US specific numbers to further the case for green building.

I, personally, would have loved to see much more region-specific figures and lessons learned from the 14M square meters of green building know how since 2010, which I suspect would be the basis of the second part of the series. Good intro to the essentials and preparation for a deeper dive...
