The City of Green Buildings Academy 2017
Registration now open.
Especially designed for students and young professionals who are or will eventually be the stakeholders of the construction industry, The City of Green Buildings Academy 2017, has reached its third edition and will take place between July 17 - 2 August, 2017 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
The theme of this year’s edition is “How to turn your building project into a brand?”
The Academy offers a unique approach in answering this theme`s question, based on case studies and the analysis of practical, non-theoretical, aspects that students and young professionals need to learn in order to become true experts in this field. The participants can be students at any level - Bachelor, Masters, PhD, recent graduates or young professionals in any field related to the sustainable construction industry - engineering, architecture, natural sciences, economics, marketing, medicine or psychology.
Each day of the program is divided in two sections, morning and afternoon, separated by the lunch break. Each section contains lectures, workshops or site visits according to the schedule. Evening and weekends are devoted to social and cultural activities. For the workshops, the participants will be divided into teams and will work together on a real project. Moreover, all courses and workshops are in English therefore making the Academy 2017 a great opportunity for its participants to practice their English language skills. For more detailed information, please see the AGENDA.
“This year's edition will be different from the others not only because of the more complex curriculum, but also because of the more challenging theme and project. Our focus will be not only in helping the participants understand the technical aspects of a sustainable building, but also the commercial and marketing sides, which have a significant contribution in delivering a successful project.” Adrian Frățean, TCOGB`s President.
Although there is a registration fee, the participants will have free accommodation, free public transport and lunch during the whole duration of the program.
The base fee for attending the program is 199 EUR (the Early Bird Fee is 149 EUR and is available for registrations made before 15 June).
