International Passive House Days

What are International Passive House Days?

The International Passive House Days is an initiative to open as much as possible existing Passive House buildings on a certain day to the public. The residents invite interested persons to visit their homes and tell them about their experiences about living in a Passive House. At the 5th International Passive House Days on 7th-9th November 2008 about 6.000 persons could visit 158 “opened” Passive House buildings in Austria.

Within the PASS-NET project the experiences about organising International Passive House Days will be spread to all partner countries.

Why International Passive House Days?

To overcome information deficits, preconceptions as well as false myths and legends about Passive House buildings the most convincing way is to organise excursions to Passive House buildings and to talk to persons living there. Regarding Passive House buildings the slogan “A picture says more than 1.000 words” can by modified into the slogan “An on-site excursion says more than 1.000 pictures and studies”.
