BEIDS Briefing 2005. Hamburg Sustainable Construction Forum: Environmental Management and Sustainable Construction in Europe

One of the major obstacles to the implementation of sustainable development is the fact that it is often perceived as something vague and abstract. Yet, the implementation of a sustainability dimension in the construction sector is not only possible, but it also makes environmental and finance sense. This seminar, organized in the context of the Interreg IIIB SmartLIFE project, will explore the links between environmental management and sustainability in the North Sea and Baltic Sea Region and showcase ways of putting sustainability in the construction field into practice.
The event will be held at TuTech in Hamburg on 26.05.2005 - 27.05.2005. Its primary aim is to clarify what the concept of sustainable development is and means to the construction business. In addition, the event aims at providing some information on the integration between environmental management methods and approaches to sustainable construction. Finally, it intends to provide a platform from which specialists from the North Sea region can interact with experts from other parts of Europe, especially from the Baltic Sea area.

Participation at the Hamburg Sustainable Construction Forum is free of charges but is by invitation only. Interested persons should register online at http://tutech.de/22323463 and - subject to acceptance - will receive further information.

  • a number of territorial indicators and typologies assisting a setting of European priorities for a balanced and polycentric enlarged European territory;

  • some integrated tools and appropriate instruments (databases, indicators, methodologies for territorial impact analysis and systematic spatial analyses) to improve the spatial co-ordination

The ESPON Project 1.1.1 deals with the role, specific situation and potentials of urban areas as nodes in a polycentric development. It was started in  2002 and completed in autumn 2004.
