Call for local partners on Clean Energy

Imagine your community’s future, powered by energy that keeps our air clean and communities healthy! 

In this experiment stream, you will get to work with different members of your community to design this future and help make it happen. Using a community visioning approach, we will work with you to support various communities (e.g. citizens from a range of ages, local and national policy representatives, business employees) with imagining their own energy futures and build their capacity to plan for those futures. We will produce practical recommendations to advance the energy transition through collaborative approaches and by focusing on clean energy as well as energy demand.

What could you receive funding to do?

  • Organise 4 stakeholder-focused co-creation events of approx. 3 hours with approximately 20 attendees invited to each event. The focus of the events is on imagining the energy future of your area by involving various groups of stakeholders: the first meeting should involve attendees representing government/policy makers, the second meeting should involve civil society organisations, the third meeting should involve local businesses and public and private businesses, the fourth meeting should involve residents in the area. 
  • Organise a joint stakeholder group event gathering representatives of the 4 stakeholder-focused co-creation events (with more than 60 participants) to share potential future scenarios, enable an exchange of visions, barriers and enablers for a successful and locally-appropriate energy transition.
  • Produce reflections, feedback, recommendations, and next steps and communicate these to all attendees of the events.

Please note that concerning the target group there is an aim to engage younger (18-30) and older generations (65+) to reflect the intergenerational focus of the social experiment.
