Join the Cycle E-Sufficiency webinar #2: mobility and public space

Date: 9 December from 10:30 to 12:00 CET

Overconsumption – of energy and materials – have devastating effects on climate and the environment.  It is urgent to start consuming less and better, in line with the concept of energy sufficiency.

Enshrined in the French Energy Transition Bill of 2015, the concept of energy sufficiency is still largely unknown and misunderstood at the European level. According to Environmental Change Institute, “Energy sufficiency is a state in which people’s basic needs for energy services are met equitably and ecological limits are respected.” (Darby and Fawcett, 2018). Energy sufficiency goes beyond energy efficiency: it’s about having enough but not using too much. It’s about doing things differently; about living well, within the limits (energysufficiency.org).

As part of its energy transition Vice-Presidency, AREC IDF is organising with FEDARENE a series of webinars on energy sufficiency in Europe: Read more
