Empowering citizens for the heat transition



The 14 March 2023 from 10:00 until 12:00



With the Decarb City Pipes 2050 project, we organise monthly online capacity-building sessions to address specific issues related to the heating and cooling transition. These sessions are based on experience sharing between peers, and invitation of key experts.

How to make sure that the transition is inclusive? What are the best ways to favour and support citizen initiatives and engagement? If those questions resonate with you, then this capacity-building session is made for you! In this session we will bring concrete examples of citizen empowerment to go further in the heating and cooling decarbonisation.
