Keeping in dialogue...
In Germany and in the countries of the Eastern and Central European region, IWO is in constant exchange with important stakeholders, especially with political, state, private and social representatives from the relevant sectors - real estate management and building-related services, ministries, urban planning and development, construction and energy industry, research & development, non-governmental organisations, homeowners...
... for our goals
Our work in the area of networking serves the purpose to
form and consolidate bi- and multilateral networks and forums on the topics of our work,
connect relevant stakeholders and experts in the relevant areas and disciplines and build long-term relationships.
create the basis and contacts for bilateral and multilateral activities and projects that benefit the development of the region in the fields of climate protection, energy efficiency, sustainability and improvement of the quality of life.
What we achieve
The aim of our networking projects is to create awareness and acceptance of the issues of climate and environmental protection, energy efficiency and decarbonisation, and a resource-efficient construction and housing industry among all players and decision-makers - in Eastern Europe as well as in Western Europe. An important prerequisite for this is mutual understanding as well as professional rapprochement and discussion across national and regional borders.
- Development and support of association structures and civil society organisations in the project countries
- Multilateral, strong consortia for well thought-out and successful project proposals
- Tracking and anticipating important issues and trends
- Demand-oriented project ideas, participation in or initiation of targeted project partnerships
It is important to us to keep our finger on the pulse of the current discourse on housing, construction and urban development. We organise our own specialist events or formats and visit those of third parties and fellow campaigners. We also participate actively and on a long-term basis in specialist or thematic working groups maintained by European networks, for example.
