The Sitges City Council and BioEconomic are pleased to announce the X BioEconomic® Sitges 2021 Conference “Biophilia, reconnecting the city and buildings with nature”.

The purpose of the Conference is to publicize how to integrate Biophilia in the territory and in buildings, to give it a sense of connection with nature. We will see the importance of green infrastructure in health. An evolutionary process of natural selection that operates in intelligent species whose survival depends on the close connection with the environment and the practical appreciation of the plants and animals in the environment. Construction and health must work together, it is about integrating Biophilia, reducing energy consumption in buildings, but also reducing and limiting risks to the health of users, ”. We will highlight the quality and respect for the environment in the territory and the building, delving into how construction and rehabilitation can be more respectful of the quality of life and the health of people.

Passivhaus principles provide a set of global improvements, from the user to the building to the environment. The spaces are configured through various concepts, being able to include the concept of Biophilia, as more natural spaces.
