EUCENA – European Citizen Energy Academy

The European Citizen Energy Academy Project aims to diversify the citizen energy movement throughout Europe, focusing on knowledge creation and transfer between Southeast and Central Europe. The Academy will provide knowledge and tools on community building, development and cooperation between communities. Best practice examples will show how to overcome the barriers for citizen energy. Workshops and coaching sessions will take place in Albania, Greece and Germany. Additionally, the Academy will introduce capacity building in other Southeast European countries to replicate the experiences. Two summer schools will deepen the cooperation between Southeast Europe, where citizen energy is just developing, and Central Europe, which already has a tradition of citizen energy, to diversify citizen energy cross-nationally. An inclusive approach will involve citizens from different ages, genders, socio-economic and ethnic groups to overcome energy and mobility poverty and gender inequality.
