Capacity Building on Regenerative Design by ACCIONA
2023-03-07 10:00 - 19:00
The online Capacity Building on Regenerative Design by ACCIONA, organised by the IURC Central Coordination Services in coordination with the Geographical Areas in two sessions (morning for Asia & Australasia and China; afternoon for Latin America and North America) aimed to support our worldwide pairings and clusters to path the way of their ongoing projects during the last year of the programme. The training was conducted on March 7th 2023 and welcomed more than 75 participants from all around the globe.
During the first part of the session, Sustainable and Urban experts shared some valuable insights for regenerative design, establishing linkages with the European Commission’s new framework and initiatives as the “New European Bauhaus” (to make tangible the Green Deal). Afterwards, some of the IURC’s parings shared their joint projects with a focus on their financial challenges (NCI-Bologna / Yangzhou; Rotterdam / Surat; Sofia / Sejong; Essen / Fortaleza; Aurora / Bergamo / Rimini; and Silesia / Parana) and received some tips for project financing from an operational perspective.
A final interactive session, through ACCIONA’s RESILIENCE tool, showed how the decision-making process can be accelerated considering common challenges and lessons learned from previous experiences, establishing interesting links between the most common issues as multilevel governance, the importance of the context, innovative technologies or public-private models.
