THANK YOU! For three weeks of our first ever VIR­TU­AL Pass­ive House Con­fer­en­ce and Ex­hib­i­tion!

The 24th In­ter­na­tion­al Pass­ive House Con­fer­en­ce, this year for the first time as a VIR­TU­AL con­fer­en­ce has come to an end. From 20 Septem­ber to 08 Oc­to­ber 2020 con­fer­en­ce par­ti­cipants and vis­it­ors of the ex­hib­i­tion had the chance to dis­cov­er our con­fer­en­ce pro­gramme, with more that 90 speak­ers in lec­ture and build­ing tour ses­sions, and our ON­LINE Pass­ive House Ex­hib­i­tion. Did you miss the con­fer­en­ce? Take a look at our So­cial Me­dia Wall to get an idea.


Build­ing the fu­ture sus­tain­ably! - By stick­ing to this fo­cus and with our com­pre­hens­ive pro­gramme the con­fer­en­ce showed how the build­ing sec­tor con­trib­utes to a sus­tain­able fu­ture. Des­pite the Corona crisis, cli­mate pro­tec­tion must con­tin­ue and we are con­vinced that en­ergy-ef­fi­cient build­ing is in­dis­pens­able for this!

We are happy to look back to sci­en­tif­ic lec­tures, build­ing tours and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing in­form­at­ive trade ex­hib­i­tion in on­line format. Thanks to all speak­ers, poster presenters, ex­hib­it­ors as well as to our part­ners and sup­port­ers and last but not least to all of you who par­ti­cip­ated in our 24th In­ter­na­tion­al Pass­ive House Cn­fer­en­ce!

Look back to our News sec­tion on the first ever vir­tu­al In­ter­na­tion­al Pass­ive House Con­fer­en­ce.


Virtual Passive House Conference | A review

Nov. 11, 2020

We are incredible happy and thankful for three weeks of virtual Passive House Conference and for all the things we learned and shared. It was an ex­hil­ar­at­ing ex­per­i­en­ce to meet so many people virtually that are pas­sion­ate about build­ing en­ergy-ef­fi­cient houses and im­ple­ment­ing these build­ing stand­ar­ds for a bet­ter and more sus­tain­able fu­ture. Take a look at our review page or dicover our Social Media Wall to read more.
