Passivhaus for educational buildings, official launch - 23 July
Are you involved in the delivery of schools, operate University estates, or tasked with net-zero carbon strategies? This event is for you! Join us for the official launch of our latest Passivhaus campaign focused on Educational Buildings. 

Following the success of the Passivhaus Social Housing Campaign, this new venture aims to encourage the adoption of the Standard and provide guidance to clients on the process of procuring Passivhaus for schools, universities, and other educational estates.

This initial two-hour online session will explore the topics of current policies for educational buildings, and why choose Passivhaus as a route to high-performance net-zero buildings. The programme allows plenty of opportunities to ask questions and interact with speakers.

The event is the first in a mini-series, which will subsequently provide a closer look at several regional case studies to back up the policy and precedence discussed in the preliminary session. We will be running 3 separate events in September, dates TBC.
