Summer School Participants Network

We are very happy to invite you to join the EUCENA Basecamp platform!

We are very happy to invite you to join the Basecamp platform of the European Citizen Energy Academy!

By joining, you will not only have access to all the presentations from the different sessions (yes, you can now have an idea about the session that you could not attend!), but more importantly, you will be able to connect with all participants of the Summer school in Thessaloniki.

You will have the opportunity to share with us all your experiences, guidebooks and other support material you find useful, invitations to upcoming events, recordings of past events, your news, but also, specific questions you may have, requests for support, or offers to help, and why not concrete (project) ideas. We hope that together we will make as many of them happen!

As we saw, the group we gathered in Thessaloniki has not only the ambition but also valuable experience and energy to push the energy transition in the region forward.

Remember that this summer school has only been the beginning of our collective efforts to help create more energy communities and even more community energy projects!

Very (!) short intro to the platform. On Basecamp, you can use the Message Board to start a conversation on specific topics with all members of the group or chat at the Campfire. You can store interesting Docs & Files and add events to the Schedule. On the Docs & Files folder  you can find all presentations and pictures – feel free to add your own pictures (if you are happy to share those with everyone in the group). One important ground rule: respect your partners.

Note that we have updated EUCENA’s Useful Resources pack. The link will also be shared on Basecamp.

The citizen energy movement is evolving all over Europe, crystalizing the need for citizens and local communities to access renewable and affordable energy, such as solar and wind energy, and to contribute actively to the transition to a just, democratic and inclusive energy system across Europe.

This summer school will foster networking at the Balkan level and cross-country exchange of ideas, tools, knowledge, and good practices. It will also begin consolidating the community energy movement in Eastern Europe, where citizen energy is just developing, and foster collaboration with partners from Central Europe and Western Europe, which already has a strong tradition of citizen energy.

The overarching objective of the summer school is to start forming a Balkan Community Energy Network through a growing community of practitioners/ambassadors and to support the growth of energy communities in the Eastern region of Europe.
