Adrian Hiel is responsible for the head of Media and Campaigns at Energy Cities. A transplanted Canadian and former journalist he believes that system change at the local level is the fairest and fastest way of ensuring that the goals of the EU’s Green Deal and avoiding the worst impacts of climate change can be achieved.
There is not one template for decarbonising a city. Each city has its own challenges and resources and will have its own unique path to becoming future-proof. But there are clearly common challenges, ideas and efforts which can be shared amongst cities. Adrian works to ensure that the EU institutions, media and partner organisations in Brussels recognise and work to address these common challenges and share success stories.
