Participation of CLIC project to the workshop “The adaptive reuse of our built heritage for a greener Europe” within the European Week of Regions and Cities”
On 9th October 2019 the Architects Council of Europe (ACE) promoted a workshop on “The adaptive re-use of our built heritage for a greener Europe” within the “European Week of Regions and Cities” that was held from 7 to 10 October in Brussels.
The workshop aimed to discuss the benefits, challenges and barriers inherent to adaptive re-use projects, starting out from the Leeuwarden Declaration adopted as a legacy of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 and through the presentation of good practices and findings from different perspectives.
CLIC contributed introducing the concept of circular economy applied to the adaptive reuse of cultural heritage and landscape with a view to economic development and environmental regeneration. Antonia Gravagnuolo from IRISS CNR was invited as speaker in this session whose intention was to highlight the many economic, social, environmental and cultural benefits that derive from the reuse, smart renovation and transformation of disused heritage places for individuals and society.
