4th European Conference on Energy Efficiency and Sustainability in Architecture and Planning Call for Papers

EESAP4 Send your abstract before 11th April 2013

Venue Miramar Palace Donostia-San Sebastiรกn, Spain Dates 1, 2, 3 July 2013

The European Conferences on Energy Efficiency and Sustainability in Architecture and Planning, raise, in its fourth edition, the topic “Rethinking: reduce, reuse, recycle.” The 3 R’s of sustainability: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, are constantly mentioned in debates, speeches and in every forum in which sustainability is a topic to cover. Up to now, society efforts have emphasized especially the promotion of the third “R”, recycling, considering it the “easily” achievable objective through short and long term actions, playing down the importance of reduction and reuse. Considering the population growth, the increasing use of natural resources and the consequent reduction of these resources for future generations, we must RETHINK about how to act in the near future, both in the architectural and urban fields. The implementation of the sustainability criteria can not disregard the need to conserve natural resources, and taking into account its life cycle, maximize reuse, reducing the consumption of energy required for the processes.
