Sustainability is a word. For it to be fully comprehended by people it should lead to a place where each of us would like to be, where we’d like to work, to live. A place that is viable as much as captivating. All these places are connected through our 14th International conference “Connection of buildings & sustainability”. We don’t have to go all the way to the tropical forests or the ocean. We will stay much closer. Home, where we live, villages and towns which we inhabit and nature that surrounds them. We believe that those places will lead to a deeper understanding and inspiration.
START 30. 11. 2021
This year’s conference will commence on Tuesday 30.11.2021 with the grand opening of our unique virtual centre. During the all day program you’ll see premium video presentations, which were shot in inspirational places all over Czechia, some even abroad. Each of the topics will be followed by a panel discussion with our guests. We want to share what we deem important to create the future for all of us.
1 + 260 days
The virtual centre will stay open for another 260 days, for all those that attended the grand opening and also for the ones that did not have the opportunity to be part of it. The content of the conference itself will keep on growing throughout the whole time. There will be many inspiring examples of sustainable construction, recordings of panel discussions and much more. The aim is to create a sustainable environment for regular meetings and sharing good examples of already finished projects.
We called together lead experts in the field of sustainable construction. Architects, designers, engineers, energetic specialists, city representatives, government officials, private investors and students – all of them are part of our conference. The inspiration comes from various places and our aim is to raise awareness even within the general public. Communication languages are Czech and English. We entrusted the production to the hands of ardent professionals.
