Exploring energy citizenship at a community level

Participants at a workshop on Energy Interface

The perceptions and attitudes towards energy in communities on the use of renewable energy may vary. The workshop aims to explore diverse perceptions and attitudes toward energy citizenship in energy-transitioning communities.

This workshop aims to explore energy citizenship at a community level, taking into consideration the various factors that enable or hinder individuals from taking sustainable actions.

The workshop’s goals are to bring diverse perspectives on energy citizenship, build a community around understanding energy citizenship, and identify important avenues for research in this area.

By creating a space for dialogue and collaboration, this workshop hopes to contribute to a more nuanced understanding of energy citizenship and its potential for creating positive change.
