The Social Tech Tour is a series of site visits to innovative, tech-enabled social enterprises. The main objective is 'peer learning': letting innovators and practitioners learn from each other. Every edition, hosts and participants will co-create a roadmap on one particular real-life challenge. This time we will be welcomed by Pauline Westendorp at an Energy Breakfast, a tasty community get-together on sustainable energy.
Are you working with tech or sustainability and are curious to learn how other actors use digital technologies for a better society?
A global rise of temperature of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels will have irremediable consequences for our planet, the latest IPCC report reveals. Many ask for an accelerated, collaborative action, stronger policies and more awareness. The EU’s new Clean Energy Package from 2018 boosts the role and autonomy of citizens and energy communities in the energy transition. But what does this mean in practice? How can we - on a national and local level - design a democratic system that harvests this potential? And how can we guarantee people-powered access, ownership and use of resources and data?
This edition is dedicated to 02025, a movement by citizens in Amsterdam with the goal to reach zero CO2 emissions by 2025. The guiding question for this event is, how can citizens take a leading role in the energy transition?
This event will be on 14th of March in the format of a communal breakfast from 08.30 until 11.00. Find the updated programme below.
Everyone is welcome to join the presentations. However, the space for the workshop is limited to 40 participants. To take part in the workshop, please register via the link above. If you cannot make it, please unregister on time so your seat is available for someone else. This event will be English spoken.
02025 is a movement, started by the social enterprise Oranje Energie, that aims for an energy transition in Amsterdam. The movement connects and supports various citizens and organisations active in the field of sustainable energy. The goal is to reach 020 zero C02 emission in 2025 with renewable, fair and safe energy. A digital platform provides the tool for this move, and the base for building a sustainable energy future for Amsterdam.
