After the outbreak of COVID-19 all over the world, people start to take action and focus on public health and overall well-being, and the collective ability to prepare for and respond to global health challenges such as COVID-19. Meanwhile, climate change has posed various threats to our living environment, including rising temperature and extreme weather conditions. When it comes to facing these interconnected crises, a green recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic could help address both human and planetary health issues, where green and healthy building presents a way to address these issues simultaneously.
