What are the Sustainable BCC Activities and SDGs?

Our protocommunity TECHNICAL AND SOCIAL CHALLENGES FOR SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS, CITIES AND COMMUNITIES. SUSTAINABLE BCC proposes two different kinds of Activities: Bottom-Up and Top-Down as follow:

BOTTOM UP educacional pilot projects and activities


Co-creation of pilot educational initiatives to solve current society challenges being transversal, interdisciplinary, inter-university and international seeking to take advantage of the Community synergies.


Imagining, creating, solving, doing, exploring, participating. It is not so about studying but about imagining, creating, solving, doing, working, exploring, analysing, modelling, participating. With educational innovation strategies such as Learning by Doing, Problem Based Learning, Design Thinking, Cooperative Learning.


The activities also have the particularity that a system of feedback and continuous improvement is foreseen to guarantee the advancement of knowledge for the community, departing in each edition from the previous work, with an international repository of classes, essays, experiences, case studies, systems of recognition, awards, publications, MOOCs.


The workshops and initiatives to be developed will be of a technical nature focused on specific challenges, or social commitment (service-learning), progressively increasing the offer to students until covering all the capabilities of our community. Summer schools, joint workshops with professionals are milestones to cover.

TOP DOWN activities and projects

  • Participating in the Solar Decathlon Europe 2023 Bucharest

The outreach of these competitions in Europe is impressive from every point of view, highlighting, for instance, more than 7.000 university students participating, or almost 680.000 people visiting the Solar Villa in SDE10 and SDE12, and many hundreds of media impacts.

We invite you to join us participating in SDE23 as the EELISA team, and not only in this competition but in an annual SD competition as the EELISA team, with a shared training-educating and awareness of EELISA infrastructure, because synergies, educating-awareness potential, and the number of students involved could be crazy.

  • Integrated Urban Regeneration Living-Lab: It consists on a good practices observatory where technicians will be trained in UIR through service-learning methodology. It is a comprehensive approach to the New European Bauhaus conceptual framework and to a research methodology for sensing, prototyping, validating and refining complex solutions in multiple and evolving real-life contexts from sectoral perspective to a comprehensive approach of: building renovation, urban integration, social cohesion and environmental responsibility.

We invite to join us to train technicians specialised in UIR through serve-learning methodology while creating a good practices observatory. We would also like to count on your collaboration for its development.
