Cities have a key role to construct and regenerate public buildings and to create databases for the optimization of energy consumption and the use and management of resources in buildings and utilities: waste, water and energy. In addition, cities can facilitate the creation of circular economy ecosystems in their region.
The aim of this project is to support the construction of a sustainable and circular economy with construction planning processes and buildings to lessen climate change, prevent the loss of biodiversity and to generate new business in the field of a sustainable and circular economy.
The main objects of the project are:
- Share the knowledge of sustainable construction planning processes between cities and companies through market dialog
- Start actions and projects to analyze, refine and reuse relevant parts and components of the older demolished health buildings or other buildings to be repurposed in new buildings
- Start local actions and projects to strengthen the sustainability and circularity of health buildings and other type of buildings
The project will create a unique collaborative learning and knowledge sharing network on sustainable construction of buildings for care centers and offices in order to share best examples of sustainable construction and circulation.
Primary target groups and stakeholders are partner cities, construction companies and businesses, nature and citizens.
