Do you want to be
part of building a movement on energy solutions? Do you think that the
renewable transition should be in the hands of communities and citizens not big
Then register now to
join us in September.
We want to gather people together to share practical skills for how to create
energy cooperatives and community energy projects, to share stories of
victories and ongoing struggles and to gather stories to grow the movement of
people owning and controlling energy.
We think we need a
gathering like this because different groups, projects and campaigns working in
different ways on energy democracy across Europe exist but they are often not
well connected outside of the national context. There are also very different
contexts regionally. For example, in Eastern Europe, energy democracy is in the
early stages and there is a lot of resistance from the State and corporations.
We are hosted in
Spain by Som
Energia and Amigos de la Tierra, and the Spanish
context will provide an important backdrop to our conversations.
particularly interested in bringing together people who are already involved in
a community energy project or who are part of a group who want to get involved.
The event is also open to activists and campaigners fighting to make our energy
system renewable and democratic.
Registration is open until the end of July and we will inform successful
applicants by the 11th of August.
