Project 3: Co-Create Distributed Positive Energy Blocks through Citizen Engagement
- +CityxChange will enable citizen participation towards more efficient energy behaviour. It will provide citizens, businesses and other local stakeholders with the sense of ownership that is critical for managing the change towards living and doing business in a positive energy city.
- A successful approach requires digital tools and physical engagement strategies, designed and implemented in an integrated way. While digital tools enable citizen participation beyond limitations of location and time, physical strategies like community meetings, co-design events and consultation processes provide higher quality community interactions and more sophisticated responses.
- +CityxChange will design a participatory framework that enables communities to become more engaged in efficient use of energy in their daily lives, and the emergence of Positive Energy Champions and innovative local organizations and businesses within these communities.
