#Renovate2Recover #DecadeofAction

The REDay2021 High-level Conference took place online on the 13th of October where we launched the Renovate Europe / E3G Study #Renovate2Recover, assessing the transformational impact of 18 National Recovery and Resilience Plans (NRRPs) for buildings, heard from Ministry Representatives about the key aspects in their country’s plans and discussed with MEPs and Ministry Representatives on what needs to happen in the next decade to boost building renovation.

This year, to mark the 10th Anniversary of the Renovate Europe Campaign, we held, on the same day, a social event in Brussels together with friends and colleagues to celebrate the Anniversary.
