A training programme to obtain professional certification in construction techniques and building rehabilitation following energy efficiency principles, based on the participation of the main stakeholders involved: students, professionals and construction companies.
A typical Hack-a-thon allows to train around 50 participants, 85% of whom believe the certificate they obtain gives them a competitive edge in the job market.
As of December 2013:
- 455 professionals graduated, with the intention of reaching 1,600 in 2015.
- 45 green projects supported: each one of its "learning laboratories" is not just a building incorporating the green measures that form part of the programmne, but they also become affordable housing for a low income family. The forecast for 2015 is to have given support to 250 community projects.
