Green Council BiH is launching a project “Pilot Research of Energy Efficiency Practices in Educational Institutions of Sarajevo Canton (Natural vs. Artificial Building Materials)” funded by the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Government of the Sarajevo Canton provided full support for the implementation of this project.

The projected activities include, among others, air quality measurements at 4 educational institutions in the Sarajevo Canton. The project results are as follows:

  1. Green practices in public education institutions are accepted and seen as future regular practice in energy efficiency reconstruction as being more environment and health friendly in accordance to the best practices from Czech Republic and Brno University of Technology;
  2. Use of local natural resources and knowledge in production of components and materials used for reconstruction of energy efficient buildings will boost local circular economy;
  3. Raise awareness of the use of natural materials for insolation particularly in public educational institutions;
  4. Raise awareness of the danger of poor IAQ in elementary schools and its effects on the development of children;
  5.  Raise awareness on importance of ventilation and recuperation air systems and building materials;
  6. Recognition and identification of necessary elements in existing legislation to be harmonised in line with EU and WHO

Ensure sustainability of the project results with direct share of knowledge and experiences to future international and national initiatives
