City Engage is part of the +CityXChange project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
The overall aim of the CityxChange project is to meet the challenge of moving to a low carbon sustainable future by creating positive energy districts and influencing citizen behaviour around energy use. Limerick was chosen as a lead city for the project, with Trondheim in Norway, and tasked with finding innovative ways of working with citizens to change the way we use and generate and share energy.
City Engage seeks to increase citizens’ understanding of the project by raising awareness of positive energy concepts and over time empowering citizens to take positive energy actions in order to lower their carbon footprint.
City Engage also seeks to increase collaboration between its citizens and Limerick City and County Council in order to co -create innovative solutions to challenges within the city.
The outcome of engagement activities will enable communities to share their vision for the future of Limerick with local authority decision makers, and will assist project partners in progressing the +Cityxchange project to transform Limerick into a low carbon city.
