Change Romania with BUILD UPON, Iași!  
Location : Primăria Municipiului Iași
From: Friday 22 April 2016, 10:30
To: Friday 22 April 2016, 15:30

Main Topic 

How to make “improving Romania” synonymous with “improving renovation”. This will address and enhance many of the problematic issues encountered so far, such as building safety, poor quality of construction, lack of transparency, lack of general awareness and participation of all stakeholders into an integrative process of co-designing an improved National Renovation Strategy.

Main Barrier to Be Addressed

Awareness Raising and Financial & Economic were identified by our consultation core group as key barriers and key opportunities. All types of buildings will be addressed: residential to continue and improve the existing renovation process, public buildings to set examples of best practices and commercial, which already have achieved higher standards of energy efficiency and sustainable renovation. In overcoming these barriers, we will also build upon our most popular financial initiatives in recent years: Green Mortgages and Property Tax Reduction for green buildings. The focus on Awareness Raising will fit with the main topic of “Changing Romania with Build Upon”.

Main Tools

Romanian Stakeholder Map ; Renowiki Database

Areas to be Addressed

Regional, Local

Expected Results

We expect the creation of an “Ambition Statement” with a set of recommendations for the central government to improve the existing National Renovation Strategy. Stakeholder participants’ dialogue and established ambitions will be recorded and utilized within subsequent workshops. Expert teachings and World Cafe Dialogue Format will contribute to consolidate a constructive collaboration for the National Renovation Strategy and incubate new ideas for achieving a better implementation through an improved National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency. We also expect as a result of the collaborative policy making, a better engagement of the end users as key stakeholders in the building renovation process.


Representatives of local administration, business community, NGOs, Research & Academia, building users representatives, Romania Green Building Council, Building Performance Institute Europe and other experts in the construction field.
