Accelerating home renovations in Europe, and the targets laid out by the European Green Deal, will not succeed without adequately involving and supporting the 195 million households that live in those homes. This session showcases how citizens across Europe – both tenants and homeowners – are already participating in renovation projects and highlights what can be done at the European and Member State level to support this growing citizen-led renovation movement. This will be followed by a discussion on how to ensure that the Renovation Wave delivers healthy, safe, affordable, and energy-efficient homes for all.
Short opening and welcome by moderator – Sara Tachelet, Communications Manager, REScoop.eu
Opening statement – Ciaran Cuffe, Member of the European Parliament, Group of the Greens
