Brussels Passive House Study Tour
Passive House California is collaborating with our fellow NAPHN affilates and friends to promote a fact-finding mission to Brussels. A special tour has been designed specifically for government and policy activists to learn how Brussels dropped their greenhouse gas emissions by 20% below 1990's levels in the space of 8 years. Leaders and managers from the Brussels Region Ministry of Health and Environment have worked with the NAPHN to host this tour. The tour includes:
- A discussion hosted by the Minister of the Environment for the Brussels Capital Region
- A workshop on the 'Exemplary Buildings' program developed by this region
- A tour of a variety of Passive House and high performance buildings, including a retrofitted office, hotel, school, apartment building and social housing complex
- A facilitated round-table discussion with fellow North American delegates to collate take-home messages and strategies
Dates are confirmed for October 16-18, 2016.
Space is limited to 20 delegates. Reservations are being accepted on a first-come-first served basis.
