Between June and September this year, over 100 Sustainable Energy Days took place around the world under the umbrella of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW). From Panama to India, and from Luxembourg to Ukraine, events took place in schools, offices, town halls, gardens, and online, demonstrating the breadth and depth of different approaches to boost the energy transition.

INSPIRING ON THE MOVE
One event this year found a creative way to promote sustainable mobility through bikes: a cycling tour across Italy from Naples to Loreto. Oceanus planned the 5 stages of the trip covering over 630 km to highlight the need for low-impact mobility.
ENERGISING HERITAGE BUILDINGS
What better way to inspire citizens about energy renovations of our public buildings than to host an event in the beautiful town hall of historic Heraklion? Attendees including both locals and specialists were invited to join the event and hear about the EU-funded project to undertake energy renovations of historic buildings.
ENERGY AND GENDER EQUALITY
Highlighting the gendered dimension of energy poverty is key to ensuring a just transition, and this series of workshops by the Spanish Association of Women for Energy invited people from a broad range of sectors to share their views on the vital role played by women in the sustainable energy transition.
CELEBRATING NEW SOLUTIONS
Making important progress on the sustainability agenda also means taking a moment to appreciate bright new solutions. At a launch party for a new debit card that plants trees with every use, eco2wallet invited the public to find out about their initiative and remind us why such actions are vital to contribute to a sustainable lifestyle.
