Green Village now in effect in international Geneva

04 June 2018

On 11 June 2018, the World Council of Churches (WCC), Implenia and JLL invite media to the launch of the “Green Village” project.

Green Village, an international park for companies and organizations, is a new large-scale project at the heart of Geneva’s international district, providing office space for rent by international organizations, non-governmental associations, and private companies. The Green Village real estate project sets six new, environmentally-oriented buildings in a park, around a restored and renovated Ecumenical Centre.

Join us to learn more about the project as we celebrate an important milestone: the Area Development Plan for the Green Village is now in effect.
