What is it about?
In Europe there is a gradual move away from satisfying our energy needs from fossil fuels to an energy system based on environmentally-friendly renewable energies and high energy efficiency; that is known as the ‘energy transition’.
In this process we give a voice to vulnerable people whose interests are often not properly represented in political debates. For that purpose, debates will be held in nine European countries involving 1,000 citizens and 150 experts. They will offer insights into what these vulnerable groups think about the energy transition and will set out recommendations for the development of and communication about fair energy transition policies.
The members of the consortium are: The Fondazione Cariplo, the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt, the IKEA Foundation, the King Baudouin Foundation, Stiftung Mercator, the Network of European Foundations, the Open Society European Policy Institute.
