Amidst increasingly frequent bouts of extreme weather, and pressure to meet decarbonisation targets, housing providers face multiple challenges in adapting their existing and new housing stock, but also in engaging residents in processes of green transformation that ultimately depend on their cooperation. Transitioning to a more climate resilient way of life also requires housing providers to keep up with financial innovations that capture the longterm benefits of energy efficient housing, and digital innovations in smart home and neighbourhood design.
Summer School 4 – 7 July 2022
For our 2022 summer school, we welcome you to Bochum to address the challenges that the climate crisis poses for the affordable housing sector. Interactive workshops with housing sector experts will support our international student teams to devise and present strategies for increasing the climate resilience of a real-life development. In addition to exploring the state of the art in construction through field visits, our students will gain an understanding of key issues for our sector such as social vulnerability to extreme weather events, and fuel poverty.
