Today we are happy to share with you the report of this year’s Life Cycle Summer School, which we organized from the 9th – 30th September 2021 as a virtual Summer School – the 10th in the series “Life Cycle Approaches to Sustainable Regional Development”.
LCSS 2021 focused on sustainable building and construction, a reflection of the sector’s importance to the regional (and global) global sustainability agenda. The Summer School brought together nearly 30 experts, who’s presentations have been summarized in the report along with an overview of LCSS 2021 as a whole.
As was the case in previous Summer Schools, the event was aimed at exploring the potential of life cycle methodologies in addressing the multiple connected issues along the extended supply chains that are specific to this sector. We were pleased to welcome 30 talented participants with a highly diverse background and from all over the world to our Summer School this year.
The Summer School highlighted various issues along the building life cycle that need to be addressed. As Janez Potočnik, one of the Summer School’s keynote speakers, said:
Natural resources provide the bridge between a competitive economy and a functioning environment. Decoupling economic development from unsustainable resource use and the resulting environmental damage is essential for the sustainable future we want.Janez Potočnik
