PARENT Living Lab

On 23 January the PARENT project team met with a diverse set of stakeholders, all active in their own way to help transform energy-related attitudes in Brussels. Project participants, social workers, representatives from citizen associations, local governments and Bruxelles Environnement sat around the table to map energy reduction and sustainability initiatives and categorize them by actor and focus. We also assessed how these measures are communicated and offered to citizens. It was a useful exchange on the plethora of initiatives available in Brussels. We will organize another two Living Lab meetings this Spring. The next two meetings will focus on the potentials and pitfalls in use of smart energy technology and on the possibilities of collaboration beyond the duration of the PARENT project.
