V International summer school “Sustainable development of the region: ecologization of construction in urbanized territories”

Topic of the school — “Implementation of the Paris Agreement on Environmental Protection in Russia”.

During the International Summer School we will discuss ecological aspects and principles of green construction for choosing construction materials, environmentally friendly technologies, closed-loop recirculation life support systems and rational use of natural resources. Following the results of the school we will develop the concept of green construction in urbanized areas with the preparation and evaluation of specific design solutions to reduce the negative impact on the natural environment with the full design cycle. These decisions can serve as a model of international construction projects for implementation in the Russian Federation.

Project development will be carried out in the field of energy efficiency of buildings; the use of environmentally friendly technologies for the production of building materials; rational land use and optimization of urban infrastructure; recycling and use of recycled materials in construction and related industries; economic justification for green building projects; environmental and economic aspects of technology recycling of building materials and products.

The University

Today Siberian Federal University (SibFU) with over 35,000 students enrolled in its programmes is one of the most actively developing universities in Russia. Annually more than 200 visiting professors – leading scientists from UK, Germany, Spain and USA – deliver their lectures at SibFU.

The University is a winner of the Russian Government grants supporting research projects under the guidance of top-level scholars from Russia and all over the world.

More information

The campus of Siberian Federal University is located in a forested area of the city of Krasnoyarsk. Academic buildings and dormitories of the university are surrounded by natural forest lands and easily accessible by the public transport. More information about the University Campus can be found here.

The City of Krasnoyarsk

Krasnoyarsk is the administrative capital of Krasnoyarsky kray – second largest region of Russia. It is a big industrial and educational centre with a population of more than 1 million people, and also an important junction of the Trans-Siberian Railway.

The city is located on the banks of the Yenisey River in the valley formed by the Eastern Sayan Mountains. Nature reserve Stolby ("pillars") has become the city’s visiting card.

Among the famous people born in Krasnoyarsk are artist Vasily Surikov, opera singer Dmitri Hvorostovsky, biathlete Evgeny Ustyugov, skeletonist Alexander Tretyakov and ice-hockey player Alexander Semin.

In March 2019 Krasnoyarsk proudly hosted the XXIX Winter Universiade.
