Invitation to Conference "Towards Energy Independency of Regions and Municipalities"
Czech Climate Coalition in cooperation with the Embassy of Austria, Heinrich Böll Foundation, organisation Calla and AF-CITYPLAN Ltd./ The League of Ecological Alternatives
invite you to the conference
Towards Energy Independency of Regions and Municipalities
Wednesday 19 June 2013 10:00 – 16:00, Austrian Cultural Forum, Jungmannovo náměstí 18, Prague 1
With increasing energy prices, dependency on fuel supplies from unstable regions and problems in agriculture, the energy independence of municipalities and regions generates multiple benefits. Energy and fuel payments do not flow away from the region but support farmers, entrepreneurs and give jobs to local people. Energy independence also contributes to environment protection and energy safety.
Specific examples from the Czech Republic, Germany and Austria will provide illustrative case studies. Representatives of these municipalities and regions will present their approaches to decreasing energy dependency.
Conference takes place within the reSITE festival – Collaborative ideas for a more livable city www.resite.cz/en.
