RESTORE (REthinking Sustainability TOwards a Regenerative Economy) is an EU COST Action that will advocate for a paradigm shift towards restorative sustainability for new and existing buildings across Europe. It will promote forward thinking and multidisciplinary knowledge, leading to solutions that celebrate the richness of design creativity while enhancing users’ experience, comfort, health, wellbeing and satisfaction inside and outside buildings, and in harmony with urban and natural ecosystems, reconnecting users to nature. The RESTORE network currently has 120+ participants across 37 countries, representing a wide spectrum of academic, client, design and construction individuals and organisations.
