Final Conference of the InnoWEE project, 23 September 2020

23 September 2020, Online

Buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of EU energy consumption and 36% of the greenhouse gas emissions. Buildings are therefore the single largest energy consumer in Europe.

At present, about 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old and almost 75% of the building stock is energy inefficient. At the same time, only about 1% of the building stock is renovated each year. Renovation of existing buildings can lead to significant energy savings, as it could reduce the EU’s total energy consumption by 5-6% and lower CO2 emissions by about 5%.

How can we make this industry more sustainable?

Join our online event if you would like to find out how innovative economically viable, flexible and modular solutions able to process high amounts of CDW waste and reaching at the same time a high performance in terms of energy-efficiency and environmental and economic impact. You will get valuable insights into developments in the building sector that go beyond state-of-the-art.

ICSD 2020 : 8th International Conference on Sustainable Development

9-10 September 2020, Rome, Italy

European Center of Sustainable Development in collaboration with Canadian Institute of Technology will organize the 8th ICSD 2020 International Conference on Sustainable Development, with particular focus on Environmental, Economic and Socio-Cultural Sustainability.
The Conference theme : Creating a unified foundation for the Sustainable Development: Research, Practice and Education
The 8th ICSD 2020 will be an excellent opportunity to share your ideas and research findings relevant to the Sustainability Science, through the European network of academics. This interdisciplinary forum is for scholars, teachers, and practitioners from any professional discipline who share an interest in—and concern for— sustainability in an holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic and social concerns intersect. Papers will be published in Open Access EJSD Journal (Thompson Reuters) and Proceedings. This ambition will proceed in a multidisciplinary way across the various fields and perspectives, through which we can address the fundamental and related questions of Sustainable Development. We invite you to submit an abstract in the range of the following streams within the ICSD 2020 program: 1. Economic Sustainability: Financial Sustainability, SME, MicroFinance Emerging Countries, International Trade 2. Environmental Sustainability: Water and Soil conservation, Healthcare, Renewable Energies, Food and Enviromental Legislation 3. Socio-Cultural Sustainability: Sustainable Urbanism, Education, Human Development, Psychology, Sociology We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, posters/exhibits, or virtual presentation. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community send an e-mail at: Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person.
