In the framework of the pre-COP26 All4Climate - Italy 2021 initiative, this event will address the topics of how buildings are affected by climate change (for example corrosion or higher probability of fires) as well as how old buildings and construction practices affect the climate and what can be done about all this.
Time: 22 September 2021, 15:00 - 16:20 CEST
Online platform: Zoom https://europa.zoom.us/j/89587259379?pwd=TzZScTlsVk9Hd2NjNHVaODM1Vm5UUT09
Meeting ID: 895 8725 9379
The event will be interactive. Brief presentations by European Commission scientists from the Joint Research Centre on the concepts and innovative solutions at the forefront of research will be followed by questions, exchange of ideas and open discussions.
The three themes of the event will be:
- Why should we adapt the built environment to climate change?
- Ways to upgrade old buildings so they are more energy efficient and safe
- The use of sensors and smart city platforms for improving resilience and sustainability
The final block of the session is reserved for getting questions, comments, ideas and testimonials from young activists, which we will bring directly to policy makers during a session at the EU Week of Regions on 12 October 2021.
Please register not later than 17 September 2021
