The COOLtoRISE training course addressed to the capiscala (representatives of the social houses) of the municipality of Parma ended yesterday May 23 with the last in-person lecture.
The training of volunteers on summer energy poverty related issues is preparatory to the activities that will involve all householders. The notions learned during the last months course will be shared by capiscala with their neighbours in order to raise awareness on issues related to energy efficiency and summer energy poverty.
The dissemination of useful tips on how to cope with heat waves and mitigate the effects of summer heat become even more important at this time. In fact, in Italy as well as in the rest of Europe, temperatures are already reaching record levels such that the month of May may turn out to be the hottest in history.
