Supporting Energy Communities in Tackling Energy Poverty and Gender Inequality: Skill Up!

INZEB is pleased to invite you to a webinar on June 12, from 11:30 am to 13:00 pm CEST, focused on addressing energy poverty and gender inequality through increased inclusivity and skills development. This engaging session brings together municipalities, energy suppliers, civil society organisations, and citizens to discuss ways to strengthen inclusion and alleviate energy poverty. The webinar will highlight the experiences and perspectives of women and vulnerable groups, identifying barriers, opportunities for policy making, and actions to drive a clean energy transition. This webinar aims to inspire action and drive meaningful change in addressing energy poverty and gender inequality. By focusing on inclusivity and skill development, we can create a more sustainable and equitable future.

One of the key sessions in the webinar will focus on the role of women as agents of change in driving a clean energy transition.
