“We are delighted to be sponsoring the C4E Forum for the second time in 2018. Our vision for the future has always focused on making buildings energy efficient and sustainable, and we have seen many inspirational ideas and developments in policies and financing for energy efficiency coming from Central and Eastern Europe over the last few years.

Do you want to know what really happens in the corridors of the European Parliament? What it takes to develop effective advocacy strategies? What doesn’t help when it comes to advocacy? Basically, do you want to know how to get what you want from policy?
If yes, then come to our workshop. We do not promise an answer to all the questions, but we do promise insights, a good discussion, and time to share your experiences as well as a good laugh. The goal of the session is to share experience and best practice between the CEE countries inside and outside the EU on how to effectively advocate for energy efficiency policies at both the national and EU level. The workshop aims at answering questions, such as how to advocate effectively and how to coordinate effectively between stakeholders on co-creating energy efficiency policies. The workshop is open to all those who want to put energy efficiency at the heart of the political debate.
