In a significant event, the Spanish “Train the Trainers (TtT)” session took place on Friday, November 24, as a key initiative within the BUS-GoCircular project. Seven organizations, including leading companies in circular solutions such as Terraversa, Rothoblaas, Kerakoll, Singular Green, and Rockwool, along with research centers like AIDIMME and Jaume I University (UJI), came together to reflect on driving circular architecture through quality training.

The session prominently featured the presentation of the BUS-GoCircular project, focusing on the obtained results and potential adaptation to the national context. The specifically designed “Training Pack” for Spain garnered particular interest, with attendees expressing its potential integration into future courses. These participants play a pivotal role in disseminating and providing education on circular architecture.

Moreover, the importance of tools developed by the Valencia Institute of Building (IVE) as part of its “National Implementation Plan” was emphasized, particularly tools like RE10, RCDs, and BdC, already available, and the upcoming release of TURIA in December, facilitating environmental project assessments.

The event included an enriching period of debate, focusing on the effective transfer of knowledge among professionals, especially those with limited time. Crucial topics were addressed, ranging from the distinction between training for installers and technicians to the significance of in-person training and the saturation of online education.

In conclusion, the “Train the Trainers” session proved to be a valuable forum for reflecting on how to drive circular architecture through quality training. The shared experiences and conclusions drawn will provide meaningful guidelines to make training more appealing and effective for industry professionals, contributing to the advancement of circular architecture in Spain.
