ACE call for quality amidst the crisis

At its General Assembly meeting held in Helsinki on 24th April 2009 the Member Organisations of The Architects’ Council of Europe, reported on the situation that is being faced in each country as a result of the global financial crisis and called on governments to realise their responsibilities for the future of architecture.

"The ACE calls on policy makers at all levels to take the unique opportunity presented by the regeneration of the global economy to actively plan for the future in critical areas such as direct investment in the energy efficiency of existing buildings, the development of large scale alternative energy projects, the refurbishment and renewal of social and collective housing and in infrastructure," read a statement to the press.

"The ACE believes that this will create large employment opportunities and, at the same time, assure the development of a better quality and sustainable built environment. It is precisely in such times of crisis that investing in socially-oriented (large scale) projects can be extremely beneficial for ensuring a sustainable development while stimulating innovation."

Hoping to make this a key political issue, the ACE also called on any potential MEP's to hold this responsibility high in their campaigns for the 2009 European Elections.
