CONTEXT

Since the Kyoto Protocol, signed in 1997, numerous national initiatives have emerged at different times. Professionals’ reaction was even more disparate, while their professional training was obeying the spirits of the time. Knowledge already exists, rich and scattered, fragmented and underused. Learners’ demands are important within the sustainable development area, applied to buildings and construction projects. All ingredients are put altogether for the initiative started at Kyoto to become reality on the ground. The European drive is without a hitch.

CONTEXT

Since the Kyoto Protocol, signed in 1997, numerous national initiatives have emerged at different times. Professionals’ reaction was even more disparate, while their professional training was obeying the spirits of the time. Knowledge already exists, rich and scattered, fragmented and underused. Learners’ demands are important within the sustainable development area, applied to buildings and construction projects. All ingredients are put altogether for the initiative started at Kyoto to become reality on the ground. The European drive is without a hitch. Nevertheless, despite numerous existing trainings, there is still a void to be filled.

OBJECTIVES

Thus, the aim is to continually standardise and update knowledge, appealing to our best university specialists and professionals. In this respect, 8 partners from five different countries, Austria, France, Greece, Italy and Romania, are part of this « sustainable building » project. The prospect is to create a two –way footbridge between university research and continuous training.

Setting up a common multilingual platform, devoted to sustainable building and open to new partners from new countries.

RESULTS and IMPACT

Sustainable development is not limited to energy savings. Management of construction waste and use recyclable materials, the quality of air and water, and it is necessary to take into account all these aspects together and make them operational.

The tool is based on setting up an Internet, multilingual, interactive platform (German, English, French, Greek, Italian and Romanian), devoted to «sustainable building» and intended for architects and professionals of the construction area. The platform has three main sections. A free access section, aimed at making aware the public, and two other sections for its members:

  • A collection of information which gathers and organises the data,
  • A set of tools meant to design courses and to manage online classes.

In this way, the platform allows, on the one side, to continually enrich and update the collection and, on the other side, to ceaselessly create new courses, adapting to new expectations. Started in 2011, by 8 partners from 5 countries, the project numbers, in 2013, more than 300 members from 14 countries.
