Programma: Interreg Programme 2007 - 2013 South East Europe




BUILD SEE supplies public administrations, enterprises and citizens with practical tools, recommendations and action plans (from SEE local country case-studies) to bridge the gap to achieve low environmental impact and become eco-friendly. The project treats of the residential sector and mostly urban re-generation, new building and residential suburb planning. BUILD SEE twofold innovation comes as an integrated approach to urban sustainability and a quality governance model of shared responsibility and city planning vision. Both the processes and product innovation dimensions aim to bridge the gap between EU policy and SEE country practices, mindful of new aspects like social issues (swift urbanization & its social problems, disadvantaged group inclusion, participation); new green urban technologies (for policies reaching EU targets on energy consumption, waste management etc) and new methodology: fresh citizenship methods/models, enterprise/stakeholder involvement, participated urban planning processes. BUILD SEE promotes joint public/private sector action and develops environmental, economic and social benefits, offering a ready answer to sustainable building & residential questions.
