Replication workshop of the Basque One-Stop-Shop Model

Opengela is exporting! Join the Opengela Replication Workshop to learn about the Basque One-Stop-Shop model and get inspired by the replication cities and regions that adapted this model to their needs.

Opengela is exporting! The Opengela home renovation service has grown in influence not only in the rest of the Basque Country, with new “district offices” in other municipalities but also in different European countries via its replication programme that started in September 2021.

In this programme, regions and cities in Europe could learn more about the Opengela model which not only tackles building energy renovation but also urban regeneration, with specific attention given to vulnerable citizens. On Thursday 31st of March and Friday 1st of April 2022, representatives from seven municipalities and regions visited Bilbao and Eibar to see first-hand the pilot office running in the Otxarkoaga and Txonta neighbourhoods, respectively.

Six months later, these municipalities and regions are invited to Brussels to share their first plans for implementing the relevant features of the Opengela model. What feature of this model is to be applied by the regions and cities that came to Bilbao in March 2022? What you can take away from the Opengela model for your own region or city? Join us on September 27th to know it all and exchange directly with the project partners and replication cities and regions. We will discuss how to set up a One-Stop-Shop, how to ensure the longevity and independence of OSS, and how to go beyond buildings to have an urban regeneration vision.
