EU Week of Regions and Cities event in Brussels 2023

RESPONSE at EU Week of Regions and Cities event in Brussels – October 2023  

A workshop about RESPONSE was organised during the EU Week of Regions and Cities event in Brussels from 9 to 12 October.


As part of the European Week of Regions and Cities held in Brussels from 9 to 12 October, RESPONSE partners organised a workshop to discuss the projectโ€™s contribution to a fair energy transition.

The energy transition should be reachable for everyone. Most Positive Energy Districts are implemented in new or recent neighbourhoods, where the population is rather well off and already aware of climate change. However, in the H2020 RESPONSE project, the cities of Turku and Dijon are setting up major collective self-consumption operations in areas where people with specific challenges live: a deprived city district in Dijon and a student village in Turku.
