This citizen science initiative continues a series of monthly workshops, contests, and activities started in March with the open dialogue “Climate Change and Energy Crisis”. The overarching objective is to increase awareness among young people about their own relationship with energy use through various activities.
On the 18th of April, a meeting with the community will be held to present and discuss the potential energy communities to be constituted under the AURORA project initiative, either through the donation of funds directly to the University of Évora; or through a partnership with the Red Cross Évora for the creation of a self-consumption energy community with benefits in services or products for the participants.
Project AURORA was invited to the citizen science seminar organised by Akamediet for Talentfulde Unge (ATU). Researchers will discuss with over 100 talented high school students on the AURORA project and how young citizens can contribute to the green transition. The seminar will be held in Nobelparken, where the crowdfunded solar panels will be installed.
On February 15, 2023, a public session between researchers and citizens will be held in the University. Several different topics will be discussed, focusing on energy, climate change and its impacts, renewable energy communities, the Portuguese legislation in force, and its implementation challenges.
ŠEK invites students to coffee and donuts at an event organized by the Študentski energetski klub / Student Energy Club (ŠEK) in collaboration with the Laboratory for Photovoltaics and Optoelectronics (LPVO) at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of Ljubljana. The event aims to attract and inform students from various disciplines about ŠEK and its activities.
Members of Forest of Dean District Council and partners from the Centre for Sustainable Energy in Bristol will host a community drop-in event at Oxenhall Parish Hall on Thursday 1st December between 3pm-7pm to discuss community owned solar projects, as well as providing wider information on energy usage and saving.
