forum pour le Droit à l’Énergie du 1er au 3 décembre 2020
When: December 1-3rd
What: 15 workshops including panel discussions, workshops and webinars
An issue that unites environmental and social campaigners, anti-poverty groups, trade unions, social housing providers, health organisations, NGOs and energy cooperatives:
We are creating a strong movement across Europe demanding and creating energy solutions for all.
This is an opportunity to connect with activists, campaigners, decision makers and researchers who work on energy poverty and energy democracy to ensure a socially-fair energy transition that leaves no one behind. The programme includes speakers from local, national and EU perspectives including: grassroot activists Alianza contra la Pobreza Energetica in Catalonia, national campaigners Focus in Slovenia and European MEPs such as Cornelia Ernst (GUE/NGL) & Radan Kanev (EPP)
Translation available: Most sessions will be in English, however translations are readily available in over 10 languages upon request. Please contact Samia.email@example.com for more information.
Energy poverty as a social and environmental justice issue:
1 in 4 Europeans are unable to adequately light, heat or cool their homes, and poor quality housing is linked to 100,000 premature deaths a year. There is growing discontent in the face of unjust and unambitious climate policies that make the poorest pay the bill of the energy transition. As rates soar due to Covid-19, it is clearer than ever before that energy poverty is a topic that can bring together organisations to unite for a more socially and environmentally just world.
The Right to Energy Coalition brings together enviromental and social just organisations, trade unions, anti-poverty groups, social housing providers, energy cooperatives, health organisations and NGOs to tackle energy poverty on an EU, national and local level. This is a vibrant coalition who share ideas, resources and pioneering solutions to eradicate energy poverty in Europe.
