Event Series "natureplus Europe – Healthy Buildings 2020"

Join natureplus and its partners for a European-wide event series on ‘healthy buildings, healthy people’ from 19 to 29 October 2020. Meet building professionals, academics, and material experts from across Europe, online or in person. During the web seminars, web conferences, site visits and exhibitions, participants will have the opportunity to learn:

  • 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. People are spending more time than ever indoors. 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. Regulations in Europe to protect the population differ strongly basing on varying degrees of strictness and often lack reliable control.

Understanding Healthy Buildings, Product and Indoor Environments
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. Across seven events, experts will discuss building product requirements e.g. for VOCs, formaldehyde and other pollutants. 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. The event series closes with a web seminar showing that pollutants not only effect human health but also undermine a sustainable life cycle of building, with potential approaches for managing pollutants and contaminants in building materials suggested.
