CALL FOR SESSIONS:
Where building stakeholders can debate
- The challenges they face
- Models available to face these challenges
- Strategies and action plans to reach them
In order to give an answer to the challenges that the sector faces we need more than scientific and technical instruments. Sector stakeholders, those who work on site every day, transforming reality and giving answers to the problems and challenges of today, can and must give answers to the challenges of the future. Furthermore, it is them who must put together available tools, building and developing action plans to face the future.
In this regard, the scope covers stakeholders who build, use and transform the built environment, those who have the operational knowledge to do so: building materials and systems manufacturers, public administrations, developers, builders, technical professionals, managers, users, etc.
That is why the industry, professionals, institutions and public administrations within the building sector are essential to develop the Roadmap that WSB14 Barcelona proposes. Their concerns and contributions are absolutely indispensable.
Thus, an innovative Conference is born, where the traditional call for papers of the scientific and technical areas of the Creating new resources area are combined with the novel “call for sessions” of the area Transforming reality, allowing businesses, administrations, institutions, independent professionals, etc. to put before the Scientific Committee sessions directed towards precise questions, studying the keys to reach the Conference objectives in depth, and gathering their experience in the areas related to the Conference topics.
With this approach, all attendees will discuss the Conference topics and take part in a participative debate process. As in the area Creating new resources, proposals for questions to present and debate in the area Transforming reality will be selected by the Scientific Committee to configure the Roadmap.
