ClimB! - Buildings and neighborhoods in climate change


Climate change poses real economic, environmental and social challenges not only for future generations, but also for us today. Alongside energy, industry, transport and agriculture, the building sector is one of the most important emitters of greenhouse gases. At the same time, this sector offers a multitude of fields of action that make it possible to significantly support the achievement of climate goals while responding to climatic changes that are already taking place. The advanced training developed will primarily deal with existing buildings and neighborhoods in the context of climate change. The focus will be on the development of strategies and measures to increase the climate resilience of settlement areas. To this objective, socio-cultural, ecological, economic, planning, technical and legal aspects for climate change adaptation of existing buildings and quarters will be considered. The focus is on the systemic interactions between buildings, open spaces and their users for the development of livable and sustainable living environments.
