The objective of the “Transnational Living Lab on Local Energy Transition” Workshop is to engage cities in co-planning activities toward the goals of Energy Transition & Climate Neutrality. We will exchange methods and best practices with the international community of Living Labs.
During this workshop, the results so far of 2ISECAP project will be presented and assessed and in particular the work performed on: (i) local and regional community initiatives and larger societal coalitions focused on energy transition and climate actions, in order to identify how they came to be, function and perform, their existing relations with formal governments, formal plans and policies, and how these relations affect the barriers and accommodation factors for their scale-up, (ii) the suitability of existing urban management approaches and spatial planning tools for introducing/facilitating sustainability and energy transition, in different area-based characteristics and in adapted ways to specific local needs, socio-economic conditions and environmental constraints. Further to the exchange and assessment of 2ISECAP findings, the ultimate objective of this workshop, is to initiate a formal exchange and co-creation on the establishment of a Transnational Living Lab on local energy transition to act as a supportive structure to cities/communities for planning the energy transition and engage the civil society. The goal is to institutionalise the Transnational Living Lab as an environment of exchange and support for cities working and pursuing energy transition and climate neutrality.
