Our Correspondence Course in Ecological Building and Design enrolments have been good this year. We are developing further education pathways with Aaroki Polytech and our BBE international affiliates. Currently Graduates can continue their studies toward full BBE registered consultant level by cross crediting to the 200 level courses via Baubologie Institute in the USA. We have also launched a collaborative joint venture to develop eco-education pathways with India's BBE equivalent organizations Vastuworld and Prithwe.
Our Eco Building/Architecture Publications are available and the list has been added to. Many of the original BBE Booklets are still available, but we are now also offering Eco Building Notes, which contain our latest information on healthier and more sustainable building in electronic format. The new KIWI bible of green architecture compiled by Johann Bernhardt (BBE AUCKLAND) "DEEPER SHADE OF GREEN" is available from our office. Johann Bernhardt has done an excellent job compiling the book. It is available through the BBE for $70.00
Congratulations to ECOBOB, as they have launched the online eco products and services directory check out www.greenlist.co.nz ecobob's on line directory.

You get access to the google docs link, and you will always have the updated copy. The directory is a great source of suppliers of healthier and more eco-friendly products and services.
