The priorities of the AURORA project are aligned with my professional goals related to democratisation and citizen participation in tackling climate change including the promotion of community energy systems.

Firstly as a founding partner of the solar photovoltaic company HELIOTEC, since 2006 I have been contributing to energy change by promoting local projects for a just energy transition.

As director of the Low Carbon Economy Foundation, our NGO promotes education and awareness-raising projects that promote a low-carbon economy and enable citizens to combat climate change.

As ambassador of the European climate pact, our mission is to connect with citizens to engage them and promote their commitment and participation.

As a member of the Mission Board on Climate Change Adaptation at the European Commission, I am supporting the Mission’s signatory regions to move towards greater adaptation and resilience by promoting citizen participation as one of the key enabling conditions.
