October, 23rd - Turin, ITALY - CONFERENCE : Lessons learned from THE4BEES project: a transnational perspective
THE4BEES builds on the hypothesis: Energy is consumed by people rather than by buildings. Although most of the strategies to achieve energy efficiency in buildings focus on technical mitigation measures, to reach the ambitious goals on Low Carbon set by EU and Alpine Strategy (EUSALP), both structural and soft approaches have been considered complementarily across the Alpine Space. THE4BEES focuses on the behavioral changes of users in public buildings needed to achieve reduction of energy consumption. Such changes are originated by an increased awareness of the issue and the use of innovative ICT applications developed by a transnational ecosystem. Those applications have been used by the target groups in the demonstration sites (schools, houses, offices) to encourage behavioral changes for energy efficiency and carbon footprint reduction.
THE4BEES final event will be organized jointly by CSI Piemonte, Lead Partner, and all THE4BEES international partnership to present and collect feedback on possible and effective strategies to involve users for energy sustainability, indoor comfort and healthier living spaces.

November, 20th to 21st - Innsbruck, AUSTRIA - 2nd EUSALP Annual Forum 2018 "shaping.future.together. with the next generation"
The 2nd EUSALP Annual Forum 2018 will take place on 20 and 21 November 2018 in the heart of the Alps at the Congress Innsbruck. The event, jointly organised by the Tyrolean EUSALP Presidency and the European Commission Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy, will address the motto "shaping.future.together. with the next generation".
Young people will discuss with politicians, experts and citizens central Alpine topics such as sustainable transport solutions for the Alpine region, vocational training, management of natural hazards, the use of Alpine natural and cultural resources or renewable energy. The aim is to find solutions together and to strengthen cooperation for the future of the Alps!
A particular focus will be on the involvement of young people in the EUSALP. In this context, it will be discussed how young people can be better integrated into the framework of the Strategy and how the Alpine Region can be preserved and further developed as a living and working space for future generations. In the framework of the contest “Pitch Your Project to the EU”, a highlight of the Forum, young people can present their own Alpine project and contribute in a very concrete way to the future regional development.

Energy efficiency and renewable energy are at the core of Europe’s commitment to a clean energy transition that serves the needs of citizens, economic development and the environment.
Achieving a smart, socially fair and sustainable energy system requires strong policies, competitive businesses and technology innovation. Mastering the digital transformation of energy and buildings will be crucial for creating a thriving economy and for the success of the global clean energy transition.
The World Sustainable Energy Days connect people and empower them to embrace the necessary change.
The annual conference features policies, technologies, innovation and market development through a unique combination of conferences and interactive events. It brings together more than 650 delegates from over 50 countries from business, the research community and the public sector.
Clean. Competitive. Connected.
