Our group of young climate ambassadors brings their views and enthousiams to the European Week of Regions and cities.
On 10th October 2019 in Brussels, the Efficient Buildings Community organised MED - Mediterranean Energy Debate a public event to present the solutions developed by the Community to the wide audience of the European Week of Regions and Cities . The event was a unique occasion for public administrators to learn from peers how to better design, implement and finance efficiency measures in public buildings and neighborhoods around the Mediterranean.
The event was organised under the patronage of the European Economic and Social Committee and co-organised by the CMCC, a member of JPI Climate and partner in the SINCERE project.
During the day, scientists, policy makers and the private actors association form the building and energy sector worked together in interactive sessions. One of those was dedicated to the schools as public buildings. For this session "raising awareness to raise future generations: energy efficiency in schools" the group of young climate engaged students from the Albanian school were invited to present their climate action and film and participated in the discussion. The students with their teacher had won the competition under the CrescendoSchools, a European network of schools on Earth system modelling and climate change, born through the CRESCENDO H2020 project. The project was selected among projects developed by different groups of students who entered in a call for participation on creating and co-developing new ideas and ways to communicate climate science and raise awareness on climate change. The prize was a participation in the Climateurope Festival 2018 in Belgrade, Serbia where the movie had its première.
A representative of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy of Albania Gjergji SIMAKU promised to distribute the video the students produced to the Albanian authorities to raise awareness of the importance climate action at school level and encouraged the students to continue their engagement.
