We proudly announce that September 8th to 14th, 2014 will bring you the first autumn school programme, exclusively dedicated to green buildings. This event is called „Cluj-Napoca – The City of Green Buildings” and has been specifically conceived for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, within fields such as architecture, construction or civil engineering. Cluj-Napoca is among the first cities in Europe to offer a tax deduction for green buildings, which renders „The Heart of Transylvania” the perfect environment for our event.
“Cluj-Napoca – The City of Green Buildings” is organised by The Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, The Faculty of Building Services, ASFIC (Faculty of Building Services of Cluj-Napoca Students’ Association), RoGBC (Romanian Green Building Council), SHARE Federation and our most recent partner, E.ON Romania.
We are all aware of how important green buildings are when it comes to a large number of factors such as the environment, energy consumption levels and urban development. Moreover, modern man spends 90% of daily time inside a building, so the quality of that building is essential to well-being.
With that in mind, we strongly believe that by properly educating future architects and engineers with respect to green buildings, which have already proved their positive impact on our lives, we can actively contribute to building a bright and secure future via sustainable development.
The event was launched along with the 4th edition of the Cluj-Napoca Days, which takes place during May 23rd to 30th, 2014 and this year’s theme is multiculturalism. For three days, part of our team represented “Cluj-Napoca – The City of Green Buildings” within the Youth Corner set up in the Museum Square. Passers-by were attracted by our “Insta-Fun”, a multifunctional prototype, which is based on the idea of creating a system that makes it possible to observe the use and transfer of solar energy to various devices.
