“Energy, environment and us: Circular economy and the role of citizens”, the first “Energy & Environment Clustering Event” will be hosted by Durham Energy Institute at Durham University and facilitated by the EUA Energy & Environment Platform.
The event will focus on the need for new skills and knowledge for the energy and climate transition. It will also highlight the crucial mindset change needed to increase efficiency in the use of raw materials and reduce harmful emissions. The concept of the circular economy and the important role of consumers will be addressed.
The H2020 project SAVES2 - Students Achieving Valuable Energy Savings will contribute in the event on 23 September with a presentation by Dr Andrew Wright, De Montfort University and Rachel Soper (NUS UK) in the Session “Universities as key actors in research, education and innovation towards the energy and climate transition” – Parallel session “Students engagement”.
