[Download Report from 22nd April, Iași – Romanian]

Iași, City Hall of Iași

22nd of April, 2016

Main Topic

How to make “improving Romania” synonymous with “improving renovation”. This will address and enhance many of the problematic issues encountered so far,

such as building safety, poor quality of construction, lack of transparency, lack of general awareness and participation of all stakeholders into an integrative

process of co-designing an improved National Renovation Strategy.

Main Barrier to Be Addressed 

Awareness Raising and Financial & Economic were identified by our consultation core group as key barriers and key opportunities. All types of buildings will be

addressed: residential to continue and improve the existing renovation process, public buildings to set examples of best practices and commercial, which already

have achieved higher standards of energy efficiency and sustainable renovation. In overcoming these barriers, we will also build upon our most popular financial

initiatives in recent years: Green Mortgages and Property Tax Reduction for green buildings. The focus on Awareness Raising will fit with the main topic of

“Changing Romania with Build Upon”.

Main Tools

Areas to be Addressed

Expected Results 

We expect the creation of an “Ambition Statement” with a set of recommendations for the central government to improve the existing National Renovation

Strategy. Stakeholder participants’ dialogue and established ambitions will be recorded and utilized within subsequent workshops. Expert teachings and

World Cafe Dialogue Format will contribute to consolidate a constructive collaboration for the National Renovation Strategy and incubate new ideas for

achieving a better implementation through an improved National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency. We also expect as a result of the collaborative policy

making, a better engagement of the end users as key stakeholders in the building renovation process.
