• Know and apply the concepts of sustainability applied to the construction and rehabilitation of buildings;
• Identify pathologies associated with the built environment, identifying their causes and proposing rehabilitation solutions according to the objectives of the interventions;
• Know sustainable materials and techniques, with the application of sustainable solutions compatible with the existing element;
• Act responsibly and consciously about the built environment, recognizing the impact of the intervention actions on the environment.

This seminar, which will work entirely on e-learning, aims to foster dialogue between European students on sustainable development, based on a multi-disciplinary analysis of a set of case studies. Students from various nationalities and distance/conventional universities will be directly confronted with different approaches to the issue of sustainability, with the aim of introducing changes in society and thus contributing to the construction of a more sustainable Europe.
