Building frugal and rational energy consumption would be the focus of discussion during the exhibition held in the presence of those concerned with ecological constructors and specialists in the field.
Development of eco-tourism
Malika emphasized the need of moving toward eco-friendly building, which sadly suffers from a lack of demand while having ecological benefits, advantages, especially on human health as well as on energy savings.
