City-Zen – Zero Energy Cities

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities

Description

Article by the Ecodynamics Group (Università Di Siena, Italy), a City-zen Roadshow partner, describing the design/scientific components involved, particularly those relating to carbon accounting and the stakeholder visualisation of the carbon challenge. City-zen Roadshows: As part of WP9 (task T3.4), Ecodynamics Group has contributed within a team of experts in a series of workshops, meant as intense training and co-working sessions to kick-off decarbonisation pathways of the hosting cities. Roadshows have used city-neighbourhoods as living labs that, with direct involvement of local stakeholders (e.g. policy makers, researchers, practitioners, experts and citizens), allowed for demonstrating feasibility of decarbonisation scenarios. Within five working days, the roadshow team of experts from the Unversity of Siena, TU Delft (NL), Queen’s University of Belfast (UK), University of Central Lancashire (UK) and Vito (BE) visit the neighbourhood (on Monday morning), elaborate an integrated energy plan and present results to a wide audience (on Friday morning).
