On Wednesday January 23, CraftEdu project has been officially launched at the ABF Foundation, Prague, Czech Republic. More than 30 professionals listened to presentations about construction crafts, energy efficiency of buildings and Czech energy-efficiency policy in general. Thanks to participation of many organizations – ranging from guilds, trade associations, professional organizations, energy and education specialists to public authorities – the topic was discussed thoroughly from different viewpoints including foreign approaches and experience (Austria and Slovakia).
Parallel with presentations, lively discussion proceeded. Participants agreed that the key trend of decreasing enrollment of youth in construction crafts education occurs in all three countries. They all also face increasing pressure to deliver energy efficiency of buildings. Impact and coaction of these trends was discussed in detail with some important outcomes important for further shaping the project. Indeed, relevance of CraftEdu has been confirmed.
