RURENER Live is on!

The idea emerged last July during an online meeting with the RURENER members: why not develop video content to share experiences more regularly and despite lockdowns?

Duly noted by the RURENER team that started working on different video contents to share monthly with the RURENER members. The contents are either related to a specific approach or technology or relate a territorial energy strategy with the words of local elected people and stakeholders.

Check out the first video on territorial dialogue, by Philippe Barret (Dialter/Geyser). We are working with Philippe through the COLEOPTER project and his long experience in the conduct of territorial dialogue is a real gold mine.

Welcome to ENER’Online

RURENER 2020 General Assembly took place… Online! Given the situation, traveling to Prespes in Greece was not realistic nor safe so the decision to bring the event online was taken. Concretely, it was composed of 2 webinars of 1h30 each. The first on October 29th was dedicated to the General Assembly meeting while the second on October 30th was organized in small workshops on different thematics to inspire new ideas between members, share experiences and build our message at the EU level.

The first workshop focused on the energy transition and attractiveness in rural territories and the second was about the opportunities offered by circular economy in rural territories (more details on the full report).
