ECOWEEK 2010: Ecology + Community + Architecture
Text: Florian Maier
ECOWEEK 2010 in Athens offers an international conference and design workshops on passive solar and ecological building and a look at sustainability in local communities and societies.
The UN Conference on Climate Change in Copenhagen may not have yielded the expected results and commitments, but ‘green’ buildings are already in global spotlight and will remain - in Greece too: towards a 20% energy reduction by 2020, the implementation of EU Directive 2002/91 (Greek law N3661/2008 FEK89A) for energy conservation in buildings, for the implementation of the Law for the waste management in construction and very soon the new EU target for energy autonomous buildings by 2016.
The conference takes place under the auspices of the European Institute of Law, Science and Technology and the City of Athens.
The design workshops of ECOWEEK 2010 will be hosted this year, for the first time in Greece, in 20 architectural offices in Athens.
Athens on March 13-20, 2010
