RehabiMed Association is an initiative that represents the ongoing experience of partnership between institutions and organizations in over 40 Euro-Mediterranean countries. It brings together a network of experts consolidated by continuing joint work between countries in the north and south of the Mediterranean, which extends its experience and knowledge to other regions of the world.
Today, there are over 400 members of RehabiMed Association: universities, government agencies, non-governmental organizations and above all individual experts in different fields of rehabilitation and urban regeneration or professionals who are interested in entering the sector. All specialize in the rehabilitation and restoration of heritage and the revitalization of historic centres.
The Association’s fundamental objective is to promote the sustainable rehabilitation of existing buildings and the social and economic revitalization of historic centres around the world by projecting the Mediterranean experience. To this end, RehabiMed promotes research and training in rehabilitation, disseminates a multidisciplinary working methodology, increases the management capacity of government agencies, helps to improve living conditions and raises awareness of the importance of heritage preservation as a factor of sustainable development.
RehabiMed Association is based in Barcelona and develops its objectives and activities in all European and Mediterranean countries, with a clear commitment to global outreach in the form of collaboration agreements with various international organizations like UNESCO.
