"Greening of Heritage Buildings" workshop
14:30 – 16:30, 30th September 2021, hybrid
This 90-minute hybrid workshop is led by the PRO-Heritage project which stands for “Training craftsmen on the greening of heritage buildings“. There are many historical buildings in Europe that need frequent quality conservation. They should be also adapted to meet European requirements for reduction of climate change impact and energy consumption. In most cases, this involves sophisticated strategies of ‘soft maintenance’ developed for traditional buildings, based on traditional skills of craftsmen and still reducing their energy consumption by 20 % and increasing renewables to 50 %. Unfortunately, today, there are few craftsmen with appropriate skills and competences. To solve this, the EU-funded PRO-Heritage project will establish a permanent education resource for professionals and craftsmen providing excellent competences and skills for built heritage and support the exchange of those competences and skills across Europe.
