The first official intermediary meeting of the Eco Citizenship Award in Ludwigsburg held place on 16/9/2017. The Award „Nachhaltigkeit (ba)rockt!“ is part of CitiEnGov project. The City of Ludwigsburg is very famous for its concepts in sustainable governance – with its integrated energy and climate protection concept, with its Information centre “Wissenszentrum Energie” and with its Masterplan Energy as part of an integrated Urban Development Strategy.
The programme was organised for households with a small ecological footprint, which are saving as much energy as possible!” It was organized by the City of Ludwigsburg for collecting interests to join the local Eco-citizens Programme which will be held from September 2017 to the spring 2018.
The event was held in the city of Grodzisk on the 22nd of April 2017 at the cultural centre in Grodzisk Mazowiecki where information on the establishment of Energy Unit, providing contact data and basic information about its tasks was provided.
Priority: Cooperating on low-carbon strategies in CENTRAL EUROPE
Priority Specific Objective: To improve territorial based low-carbon energy planning strategies and policies supporting climate change mitigation.
Project result: The improvement of public authorities capacities to define and implement low carbon energy planning and strategies. Seven pilot actions will be tested in seven countries, targeted to citizens, schools and municipalities.
Energy is a horizontal policy issue which influences directly or indirectly all other policy areas and consequently the whole socio-economic system. Given this assumption, (urban) public authorities play a key role as "facilitators” of the energy transformation process. They should coordinate approaches to formulate and plan low-carbon energy strategies. To achieve this, cities should set up energy units or empower those already established, mainly by providing them with tools and strategies but also giving them an effective role within the public administration.
The key to success is a weaving together of individual low carbon energy strategies, creating an integrated framework of policies and programmes.
CitiEnGov aims to improve the capacity of public administrations to implement new energy planning strategies through a new comprehensive concept based on the:
