RE-GREEN plans the future in Ptuj

Last March, the RE -GREEN project partnership met for two days in order to make a progress meeting on the work undertaken to date and define the next activities and goals.

The workload was divided in three different events – an international workshop, the 5th Steering Committee Meeting and the 2nd Political Board Meeting – , which allowed internally discuss some technical and financial issues, as well as hear the perspective of different Slovenian experts on specific issues related to the sustainable economy and green buildings.  Attended by various key actors from the different regions that make part of the project, including three Mayors, the Political Board Meeting was particularly interesting and relevant to the future of the project. At the table, the various parties discussed the main lines set out in the presented Regional Implementation Plans, taking the opportunity for sharing experiences, ideas and expectations about the implementation of the planned strategies and activities. Aware of local and regional realities and specificities, all government representatives present in the event were able to express their views and commitment regarding the pursuit of the goals of the project, in particular with regard to the implementation of policies and mechanisms expressed in documents drawn up. Result of an intensive research, which included not only an accurate diagnosis of local situations, but also visits to various projects undertaken by the various cities and regions involved in the project, as well as analysis of international case studies, the Regional Implementation Plans are the realization of a work based on a participatory approach with different types of stakeholders. This participatory approach has been one of the major gains for the completion of the various tasks and activities of the project and it is expected be central in the future, so that the work can be carried out successfully and with tangible results.

Over the coming months, partners will complete the final version of their respective implementation plans as well as a good practices guide.  The final results of the project will be presented in November, in the final conference of the project in Sheffield.
