UIPI Renovation Tour continues in 2022 in Athens! UIPI is happy to announce that the UIPI Renovation Tour – Owners on Board series of events will continue in 2022. The first event of the year will take place in Athens, Greece, on 11 March 2022
The UIPI Renovation Tour aims to bring EU climate goals and policies – more specifically the Renovation Wave and its practical implications – closer to European property owners and managers, promote and steer the political and public debates at local and national levels, give the opportunity for affected parties to provide feedback and propose existing solutions to help all those who wish to engage in the needed efforts to renovate the European building stock and contribute for a greener and more sustainable future. The tour counts with the participation of EU institutions and local governments representatives, as well as key stakeholders in the building and energy efficiency markets. Concrete examples of paths for renovation are offered so as to simplify the renovation journeys of those interested.
Given the positive and successful experiences during this year 2021 – when the UIPI Renovation Tour marked its presence in the cities of Budapest (Hungary) , Liège (Belgium) and Vitoria (Spain) – it became clear that more events like this are needed and UIPI will do its best to keep on organising them, all over Europe, in the years to come. Indeed, such events give the opportunity to all participants to address their concerns and also to have their doubts cleared when possible. This strongly reinforces our belief that such events are extremely useful for awareness raising and to bring policy closer to citizens; two things without which the Renovation Wave will hardly be successful.
We hope you can participate and we will keep you informed of any updates.
