Sustainable transport in cities & towns

Thursday, 20 October 2016, 11:00 - 12:40 CET

Road transport is one of the main sources of CO2 emissions in cities. Growing traffic density not only causes pollution and noise but also has negative impact on human health and road safety. Therefore there is a need for more efficient and environmentally friendly transport systems and transport solutions. There are already several good examples of European cities who are implementing well-thought measures aiming at optimising transport flows and at encouraging citizens to adopt more sustainable mobility patterns. Among them there are Gdynia (Poland) and Zagreb (Croatia), who will share their experience with the audience.

Enhancing heating & cooling strategies at local level

Tuesday, 24 May 2016, 11:00 – 12:30 CET

Heating and cooling are intrinsically local/regional matters. Despite the very positive signals for the take-off of renewable heating and cooling provided by both EE and RES directives, many barriers remain for achieving the goal of high levels of renewable heating and cooling by 2020.

ICLEI Europe and the  STRATEGO project organize the webinar "Enhancing heating & cooling strategies at local level", taking place on 24 May 2016, from 11 to 12:30 CET.

This webinar will share insights, tips and tools, and success stories on increasing the diffusion of sustainable district heating and cooling strategies in Europe, at local and regional level. Results and recommendation by the EU-funded projects CELSIUS, SmartReFlex and Mayors in Action will also be presented.

Municipal Integrated Actions involving citizens

Thursday, 3 March 2016, 11:00 – 12:30 CET

In order to achieve the strategic objectives of EU 2020 climate-energy package, it is necessary for the local authorities to integrate measures and initiatives. Involving citizens increases energy efficiency through behavioral change, and supports local investments that promote the preservation of the environment directly and indirectly, encouraging energy saving and production from renewable sources.

SEAPs and business planning

Tuesday, 14th December 2015, 10:30 – 12:00 CET

The implementation of SEAP actions often requires a long preparatory period. Many aspects have to be taken into consideration, and business plans (BP) can provide a systematic approach. BP is not only about finance, but other aspects like support of citizens and other local stakeholders are important points of attention. What are the good practices available?  These and more questions were answered during the webinar "SEAPs and business planning".

SEAPs´ implementation in residential buildings

Thursday, 28 May 2015, 10:45 - 12:30 CET

Residential buildings alone are responsible for more than 30% of total CO2 emissions in a city, making them one of the main energy consuming sector in civil sector in Europe.
That’s why many initiatives took place to raise awareness and involve citizens, enterprises, building administrators, energy managers and experts in saving energy in households.

Engaging communities in SEAPs´ implementation

Monday, 27 April 2015, 11:00 – 12:30 CET

Engaging citizens and citizen-led initiatives when implementing sustainable energy actions and policies can help to reduce opposition to renewable energy within the community, increase energy efficiency through behavioral change, and can support leveraging local private investments that would not be available otherwise.
The webinar was organized in collaboration with the CO-POWER project.
