Sources and further information
Traditional architecture and local materials play a very important role in alpine space but it is often neglected. Pilot region in north-western Slovenia is one of those examples, therefore an incentive for triggering cooperation among SME’s dealing with sustainable building and local materials is very important. The conference/workshop emphasised the awareness of public sector to promote traditional building and stressed the importance of local SME’s and local materials when taking into consideration the principles of green public procurement.
