The project ENLARGE, a two-year initiative funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, has entered its key phase and it is now launching a call for participatory practices in the sustainable energy field. All stakeholders (local authorities, civil society organisations, business sector, etc.) are invited to share practices deemed relevant, both successful or not. Please fill in this template Please fill in this template (.docx)  and send it via email to contact@enlarge-project.eu.

By submitting your practice, you can also ask to become “Supporting Partner” and engage in the project to benefit of the following opportunities:
• Participate in the “Deliberative Event” in Milan in October 2017. The event will bring together more than 100 representatives of local and regional authorities, civil society associations and the business sector (the participation in the event is conditioned to a selection process of the practices submitted);
• Develop with us a local dissemination event on participatory processes in energy policies: specific resources have been dedicated to this by the project;
• Join a wide network of local and regional authorities and civil society organisations with good practices on energy policies and benefit of the knowledge transfer;
• Test innovative tools provided by the CYOA (Choose Your Own Adventure) book on citizen involvement on local sustainable energy policies.

ENLARGE is a two-year project focused on sustainable energy and energy efficiency, which is funded by the Horizon 2020 programme and explores existing models of participatory governance. More specifically, we are interested in understanding how different participatory tools and mechanisms favour (or not) social legitimacy, effectiveness, and sustainability within the context of energy policies. This will be done by bringing together theoretical knowledge and on-the-ground experiences. The key outcome will be an interactive book for raising awareness among public administrators and stakeholders about alternative scenarios based on concrete experiences and pragmatic examples.
