Launch of the project ENLARGE
Energies for Local Administration:
Renovate Governance in Europe


Participatory processes in co-creating and co-managing sustainable energy policies: the challenge of the new H2020 project ENLARGE – Energies for Local Administration: Renovate Governance in Europe


ENLARGE is a two year Horizon 2020 funded project that aims to generate and disseminate shared, structured and constructive knowledge on participatory governance through an intense process of dialogue and communication among policy makers, civil society actors and practitioners. The focus is on sustainable energy and, more generally, on all the solutions aimed at generating efficient and effective public services and endowments.

ENLARGE aims, in particular, at providing an answer to the following questions:

  • Which different types of sustainable energy initiatives prompt citizen involvement?
  • Which stakeholder(s) do(es) foster citizen involvement? What types of actors are actually involved?
  • Which participatory strategies result into better policy results? Which ones raises resistance and conflicts?

How to benefit from ENLARGE?

ENLARGE is calling all stakeholders interested in participatory processes and energy policies (local and regional authorities, civil society organisations, business sector, etc.) to become “Supporting Partners” and engage in the project to benefit of the following opportunities:

  • submit your practices on participatory processes in the co-creation and co-management of energy policies and boost their visibility (more than 30 practices have been collected already);
  • participate in the “Deliberative Event” in Milan in October 2017. The event will bring together more than 100 representatives of local and regional authorities and civil society associations;
  • 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
