BUILD UPON2 Virtual Summit

20.9.2021 | 15.00–18.30




WorldGBC is delighted to announce the BUILD UPON2 Virtual Summit on 20 September 2021.

As a flagship event on the first day of World Green Building Week 2021, the Summit will bring together hundreds of leaders from industry, public sector and civil society in an online conference. The central theme is how leaders can work together to deliver the EU Renovation Wave and the EU Green Deal.

Throughout the event we will profile the work of the BUILD UPON2 project to empower cities as key enablers of the Renovation Wave through a unique impact framework for quantifying the holistic benefits of building renovation.

Finally, the Summit will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and inspiration on how public and private sector actors alike can scale up efforts to address the monumental challenge ahead to deliver the Renovation Wave.

We are inviting a high-level panel of speakers for two moderated plenary sessions that will focus on the wider issue of building renovation, and the role of cities, respectively. Between these sessions there will be thematic streams centred around key issues that connect with the challenge of renovating Europe’s building stock, such as resilience and the crucial importance of quality data.

The Summit will have a virtual conference format using interactive tools to foster community building and networking amongst attendees. It follows the highly successful first BUILD UPON2 summit in December 2019 in Brussels, which brought together over 170 stakeholders from across the value chain.

 

We look forward to welcoming you! Register here.
