Venice BUILD UPON Meeting: A Call to Action!
Green Building Councils from 20 countries convened alongside BUILD UPON’s Advisory Board at the inspiring Ca’ Foscari University of Venice as the project issued a call to action for more countries to take up the renovation strategy challenge. The project is now actively working with GBCs from Austria, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland and the UK.
After a welcome conference with keynotes on ‘How Big Change Happens’, ‘How to Mobilize Investors’, panels with our Regional Partners and more, attendees worked hard to prototype new innovation projects in BUILD UPON’s Innovation Incubator and have now finalized four new project concepts on:
- Motivating Homeowners;
- University Education;
- A European Centre for Green Schools; and
- Green Mortgages.
These projects are now looking for partners and funders.
