Proceso participativo para las Estrategias Nacionales de Rehabilitación

El proyecto tiene como objetivo empoderar a 1000 actores clave – desde gobiernos y empresas hasta ONGs y propietarios de viviendas – en 13 países diferentes para perfilar el cambio necesario en nuestros edificios existentes. A través de 80 eventos relacionados entre sí, que tendrán lugar en las capitales y ciudades relevantes de los países participantes en el proyecto, generaremos una comunidad colaborativa para ayudar a los países a diseñar e implantar sus estrategias nacionales fortalecidas.


Upcoming Events



10th October
European Parliament

The Dialogue Journey

Habrá una combinación de eventos, algunos se centrarán en cuestiones regionales (que se celebrarán en grandes ciudades),
otros en aspectos nacionales (que se desarrollarán principalmente en las capitales), y otros en temas paneuropeos.
