Thank you See attendees Thank you! After an inspiring day full of learning and networking, we have a lot of material to share with you. Have a look Who was there? Browse through the attendee cards and search by country, interest or alphabet. Start here Thematic workshop on Energy Efficiency in Buildings for approved Interreg Europe projects The Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform will host a Thematic Workshop on Energy Efficiency in Buildings on 28 June in Florence. Join us at this interactive and participatory workshop to meet other Interreg Europe project partners, discuss project complementarities, share good practices, define future common activities for advancing your regional energy efficiency approaches, and learn about European initiatives that can support your regional activities. Additionally, you will hear about the latest developments and initiatives in energy efficiency at the European level, and shape the future activities of the Policy Learning Platform.    Buildings represent 40% of energy consumption in the EU, and improving their performance is a key challenge for regional policy-makers. The challenge has been given additional impetus by the recast of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), which will require member states to develop long-term strategies to support renovation of public and private buildings to be nearly zero energy buildings in 2050, with milestones for 2030 and 2040. Improving energy efficiency involves a combination of technologies, market mechanisms, policies and behavioural change, requiring co-operation and co-ordination between governments, businesses, and publics. Getting the right support policies in place for all of these factors is essential for success. But regions across Europe have already worked to find the right policies, and solutions exist that can inform your regional approaches.  Who should participate?Two participants per project are invited, from the project partners most relevant to the topic addressed. Managing Authorities are strongly encouraged to join. Please note that this event is by invitation only.   If you would like to include more than two partners, please let us know and we will contact you if there are spaces remaining. Associated travel and accommodation costs are eligible under the project budget. Questions?

Environment and Resource EfficiencyEnvironment and resource efficiency policies provide opportunities for regional growth and job creation and can boost the attractiveness of a region for businesses, citizens and tourists. Regions need to protect ecosystems and vulnerable landscapes and prevent biodiversity loss in their territories to prevent (further) degradation of these natural assets. The sustainable management and exploitation of the natural environment can also foster sustainable regional development based on so-called ecosystem services. A similar logic applies to the preservation and exploitation of regional cultural heritage. Preservation and exploitation strategies can incorporate ICT applications to, for instance, raise public awareness and ownership of cultural heritage or by introducing applications on e-culture. Enhancing resource efficiency at regional level involves using limited resources sustainably, whilst also avoiding negative impacts for the environment. Efficiency also allows to create greater value from less input, bringing down unit costs for manufacturers and buyers. Regions can play a key role in improving resource use through interacting with consumers and producers, as well as through their own role as energy consumer. Although various national and supra-national initiatives are in place to support this transition, regions do play a key role. Interreg Europe can help regions to find practices to answer regional challenges, such as preparing sustainable exploitation models for natural and cultural heritage assets, developing and integrating green infrastructure, encouraging SMEs to assess and address resource use issues, or, reducing waste volumes in SMES and households. This platform offers participants and other stakeholders a range of ideas and inspiration on how to better protect natural and cultural heritage and use Earth’s limited resources in a sustainable manner and thus contribue to meeting environmental and socio-economic objectives. The support is provided through a set of workshops, networking events, examples of good practices and a helpdesk of experts.
