The citizen energy movement is evolving all over Europe, crystalizing the need for citizens and local communities to access renewable and affordable energy, such as solar and wind energy, and to contribute actively to the transition to a just, democratic and inclusive energy system across Europe.

This summer school will foster networking at the Balkan level and cross-country exchange of ideas, tools, knowledge, and good practices. It will also begin consolidating the community energy movement in Eastern Europe, where citizen energy is just developing, and foster collaboration with partners from Central Europe and Western Europe, which already has a strong tradition of citizen energy.

The overarching objective of the summer school is to start forming a Balkan Community Energy Network through a growing community of practitioners/ambassadors and to support the growth of energy communities in the Eastern region of Europe.

The key themes of the training are networking, capacity building and knowledge transfer.
