On 19th of September 2022, COOLTORISE project was presented at the European event “Summer energy poverty: thinking outside of the box” within the EUSEW (EU Sustainable Energy Week) 2022 extended programme.
In this popular EU event, we have joined forces as a consortium of five European projects and initiatives and organised the policy session “Summer energy poverty: thinking outside of the box”. The team consists of the H2020 projects COOLTORISE, EMPOWERMED and WELLbased, the NGO RETE ASSIST, and the non-profit network Women Engage for a Common Future (WECF). The session linked a variety of actors in a discussion on what needs to be done to tackle Summer energy poverty.
At this online event our speakers presented the following topics: Summer energy poverty as an outcome of climate change that disproportionally affects the vulnerable people; Policy recommendations on tackling Energy Poverty; Practical solutions in the context of combating Summer energy poverty; Health-focused approaches to tackle Energy Poverty; Role of public authorities and urban measures to tackle Summer energy poverty.
The session was also broadcasted live on the COOLTORISE Project channel and ZOOM application.
