For the second year in a row, Belgrade will gather the world’s most significant experts in the field of sustainable and energy efficient architecture, at the 2nd International Congress SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE – ENERGY EFFICIENCY to be held at the Yugoslav Cinematheque 5-7 October.

In addition to lectures, as the central part of the program, two workshops will be held in parallel, primarily for young architects and designers, students who want to acquire practical skills and learn from the world’s greatest experts. Workshops run by Marco Casagrande and Karen McEvoy.
The organisers prepared an interesting accompanying program this year so that the participants of the Congress during the breaks will have the opportunity to ride bicycles in the streets of Copenhagen. A virtual ride in the Danish capital was made possible by the Embassy of Denmark in Serbia.
