At the beginning of September we started a new project in cooperation with Croatian Green Building Council that will contribute to an increased understanding, acceptance and uptake of climate friendly solutions and renovation procedures in historical buildings among municipal decision makers and key experts. The two year project will further inform and foster the improvement leading to energy efficiency of heritage neighbourhoods in Poland and Croatia. Moreover, it will strengthen cooperation, knowledge transfer and experience exchange in the field of climate mitigation through sustainable renovation of heritage buildings between municipal and civil society actors in Croatia and Poland.
All this will be possible thanks to collaborative learning process engaging local stakeholders in Poland and Croatia in the form of interviews, meetings and workshops in cities.
The results of the project will be disseminated among target groups through the practical publication published in Polish, Croatian and English and final conferences in Poland and Croatia.
This project [Climate Mitigation in Heritage Buildings] is part of the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). It is the overarching goal of the EUKI to foster climate cooperation within the European Union (EU) in order to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
