Healthy Buildings 2020 Events

Invitation to the event series "natureplus Europe – Healthy Buildings 2020" from 19 to 29 October 2020 online or in-person all over Europe.

Join natureplus and its European partners for ‘natureplus Europe - Healthy Buildings 2020’, a series of web-seminars, site visits and exhibitions taking place online and in-person from 19 to 29 October 2020. The ‘Healthy Buildings, Healthy People’ series provides an opportunity to hear from and network with building professionals, leading academics, and material experts from across Europe. During the events you will learn about:

  • What a healthy building product is.
  • How good indoor air quality is determined.
  • How to measure and monitor for health and well-being.
  • The latest research and guidance on indoor air quality.
  • Best practise examples, products and case studies to enable healthy indoor environments.

The worldwide COVID pandemic has raised public awareness of health issues and this year people have spent more time than ever inside their homes. There is little discussion, however, about the role of buildings for human health, which are often anything but healthy. Many materials in our homes, schools and offices contain and emit substances that are harmful to our health and weaken our immune system.

In order to share knowledge with health-conscious consumers, building professionals and planners, natureplus and the national representatives Agrodome, ASBP and IBO invite you to the 10 day event series. Building professionals from Austria, Germany, Great Britain, and Netherlands will discuss factors influencing indoor air quality and the important role of materials, reliable testing and certification. Site visits and exhibitions demonstrate the high potential of bio-based and sustainable materials for healthy buildings.


Event schedule (All events free except for 22nd October event)
