Sustainable building, or green building for expats in Brno. Challenge by DOMEQ and Foreigners.cz

Challenge description

Sustainable or green buildings in Brno. Challenge by DOMEQ and Foreigners.cz

Sustainable or green buildings are an outcome of a design philosophy which focuses on increasing the efficiency of resource use — energy, water, and materials — while reducing buildings’ impacts on human health and the environment during the building's lifecycle, through better siting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and demolition.

Even though green buildings are interpreted in many different ways, a common view is that they should be designed and operated to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by (a) efficiently using energy, water, and other resources, (b) protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity, and (c) reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation.

You will be challenged to find out:

  • Which part(s) of the city would be suitable to build green buildings?
  • How would the building be designed or co-design by citizens and with occupants and why?
  • What would be the sustainable features in the operation of the building? Or What would make this building truly innovative and sustainable?

Together we can make Brno and the world a better place to live!

Climathon is a global 24-hour climate change hackathon which will take place simultaneously in major cities around the world on 26 October 2018.
