Co-Creating National Renovation Strategies

The project aims to empower 1,000 key stakeholders – from governments and businesses, to NGOs and householders – across 13 countries, to shape the change needed in our existing buildings. By holding over 80 connected events in the capitals and major cities of the project countries throughout 2016 and 2017, we’ll create a collaborative community to help countries design and implement their strengthened national renovation strategies.

The Dialogue Journey

Each country will host a series of events, each one linked to ensure they build upon one another and consciously create the communities of actors needed to meet Europe's existing building challenge. There will be a mixture of events; some focusing on regional issues (held in major cities), some on national issues (held in capital cities), and others on pan-European issues. Below is an example of the Dialogue Journey each GBC will host - go to each country page to view detail of the specific events each country is hosting.
