Project BENE (citizen action for sustainable energy) completed

In the beginning of april, a workshop in the context of the project BENE took place in the Eco-Region Kaindorf as the final project activity.
The project BENE (Citizen action for sustainable energy) consists of three parts: First, it assessed the potential of active citizen engagement in energy issues as a contribution to more energy-aware lifestyles. Building on this analysis, strategies on how to improve citizen action were developed and implemented in cooperation with two initiatives – namely “Eco-Region Kaindorf” and “Ökostrombörse”. Finally, a policy paper summarizes main results and facilitates the extension and replication of existing initiatives.

During the workshop, the participants discussed how sustainable ideas can be transferred into the Eco-Region. Moreover, the concept of an action day was created.
SERI researcher Ines Omann and Ira Mollay, founder of the “Mutmacherei” (“inspire4change“) moderated the workshop.
Thereby, Ira Mollay presented the Mutmacherei, including several examples which are relevant for Kaindorf. In the subsequent discussions, participants created new ideas for Kaindorf which will be realized during the action day.
