  • The "recipe book" for sustainability

    Article of Regione Veneto, Claudio Perin published in ©UrbJus – Novità normative e giurisprudenziali:

    We rarely deal with documents and European legislation in this section, but perhaps it is worth considering - at least from time to time - the European context within which regional and local territorial policies aimed at sustainability, such as that expressed - just to cite the most recent example and to us closer - from the recent Venetian law on the limitation of land consumption, are defined and focused.

    In fact, more than one wondered why in most of the Italian regions (and, at the level of initiative that has been under discussion for years, also at national level) it has been deemed necessary to elaborate specific measures on this issue - land consumption - when since several years urban plans already include a mandatory sustainability assessment developed at European level (the SEA), which focuses mainly on new settlement forecasts.


  • Public project review of sustainable buildings, AURA-EE

    In Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, the Communuauté de Communes of Monts du Lyonnais, one of the two pilot projects in Cesba Alps, organizes a public project review of sustainable buildings. Public project review consists in an exchange between sustainable construction professionals and citizens, with three presentations of buidlings, to improve the quality of buildings.  An old farm renovated with eco-materials, a house dating from 80s renovated at passive level and the new built police station reaching Nearly Zero Energy Level will be presented and discussed on 14/12/2017 in Saint Symphorien Sur Coise. A visit of the police station will follow, ending with a friendly "apéritif". AURA-EE supports the organization of this event. rdp_parc_eco-aura-ee.pdf

  • Fourth CLC meeting in Veneto and plans for next year

Main goal of the meeting was to present to CLC members the results of the analysis on policy context conducted so far by SM.SR, aimed at ensuring coherence between the sustainability indicators to be selected within the project and the reference strategies and operative tools applied in Veneto Region. In parallel, a critical analysis of relevance and measurability of CESBA-KPI was conducted and the concrete experience of Padua Province in monitoring the Territorial Plans (PTCP) was presented.

  • CESBA Local Committees (CLC) Activity Report

    CESBA Local Committees (CLCs) are at the centre of local/regional works in the CESBA Alps project.

    The members of the CESBA local committees are the important stakeholders for the territory in the sustainability field.

    Every partner is flexible in the definition of its CLC, and can invite whatever organizations, from the moment they have an interest for activities and background to feed the local reflections about the choice of indicators. The form of the committee is flexible, depending on the local priorities. Read more about the work done in the CESBA Local Committees…
