How do you engage individuals and local organisations in the energy transition? What does it need to make them allies in the journey towards greener cities? And what if people get tired of workshops around the city of TOMORROW? In this episode I was joined by two “activators” as I would call them: Anne-Claire Urvoas from the City of Brest where she is in charge of mobilisation for the energy transition and Alejandro Gomez who is energy project manager at Valencia Clima i Energia. They shared valuable insights on community-building and participation as a key enabler to advance the city’s transition towards climate neutrality.
