The need is a widespread diffusion and application of sustainable housing. The challenge is to move from the extraordinary to the ordinary procedure, balancing the investment cost with the economic, environmental and social benefit. The SHE project, proposed by social housing organisations, aims to manage the building process of some 900 sustainable dwellings, according to Agenda 21, to develop a set of best practice solutions. A set of work packages and some innovative work tasks (participation and social/economic aspects) are defined. A team of experts will give scientific support in specific topics. A permanent wide dissemination will be developed towards targeted groups. Expected results are practical methodologies to improve assessment of best practice solutions, direct participation and involvement of the citizen and integrated approach.
