In association with the City of Liege and the SNPC (Syndicat National des Propriétaires et Copropriétaires), UIPI will organise the second event of the UIPI Renovation Tour series in Liège on 24 September 2021. It aims to bring the European Commission’s (EC) climate targets closer to EU citizens, notably Wallonia property owners, by leading locally relevant policy debates and proposing practical solutions building on existing European and local initiatives.
The event will be divided in two sessions. In the morning there will be a policy session which will feature keynote speaker presentations to set the scene, and explain to the participants what is expected at EU, national and local level in terms of regulations and support schemes with an energy-efficiency focus. To steer the discussion around the implications that these might entail for relevant stakeholders, decision-makers and affected citizens, this morning session will end with a participative round-table discussion, in which invited speakers have the opportunity to exchange their views and expertise, and all event participants (presential and virtual) get to ask questions or make comments.
The afternoon session will be dedicated to help citizens, property owners and building managers entail with the changes asked from them. A series of workshops panels will focus on what we can do to renovate our buildings through practical solutions in the fields of financial aspects, technical solutions and innovations and available assistance to facilitate renovation. The workshops will include short presentations or trainings and allow for participants to clear out any doubts they might have by addressing the panelists directly. To end the afternoon session and event, there will be a final feedback session to review provided information, main takes and comments from all participants.
