Title: Sustainable Housing in Europe
The SHE project, led by social housing organizations and coordinated by FederabitazioneEurope-Confcooperative, aims to demonstrate the feasibility of sustainable housing for all social groups through eight pilot projects (600 eco-dwellings) in Denmark, France, Italy and Portugal, all involving stakeholders and focusing on the end user. The project shows the benefits of sustainable housing, evaluating and developing new methodologies and best-practice guidelines. The key goals are to develop an integrated approach aimed at moving sustainable housing from the extraordinary to the ordinary, to improve energy consumption, environmental performance and urban quality of life, and to promote sustainable building approaches in national, regional and local policies.
