Website/register: World Sustainable Building Conference 2014
Description: The theme for the conference is ‘Sustainable Building Results…Are We Moving as Quickly as We should? It’s up to us!’. The goal of the World SB14 Barcelona Conference is to encourage the uptake of adequate answers to the challenges, social and environmental, which the building sector faces. The building sector acts locally, solving problems on a local and regional scale, but must face challenges on a global scale that compel considering, in an integrated and complex way, the following issues:
- The world population’s need for decent housing
- Reducing the ecological footprint that is needed to do so, especially energy, considering its climatic effects
- Promote an economic model which is solvent, sustainable and creates jobs
The main aim of the World SB14 Conference is to propose and promote a Roadmap, to kick start a process that allows the building sector to define, as soon as possible, the local action plans that will give an effective answer to the global challenges, social and environmental, that it faces.
