The project AlpBC will define and implement strategies and measures to preserve and advance Alpine Building Culture in the broader context of territorial development and ecologic sustainability. It aims at enabling local actors to capitalize on this outstanding cultural asset as a source of regional identity and economic development.
Central elements of AlpBC are a) the implementation of inter-municipal planning concepts, b) the stimulation of regional closed loop economies in the building sector, c) the implementation of a network of regional centers and contact points for transfer of knowledge and technologies on building renovation to SMEs, decision makers and administration, and d) the implementation of participative governance processes and consultancy instruments for policy makers and regional authorities.
AlpBC capitalizes on the outcomes of previous projects on building culture and energy efficiency (e.g. Project AlpHouse)
