At this event, you can engage in workshops, presentations and discussions focused on:

Growth, growth and more growth. To what extent? Is it the only focus? While GDP is predominantly taken as the measure of the world’s success, it is being questioned. Extreme poverty, an almost blind strive for technology innovation, material wealth, with unhappiness, a mind-blowingly rapid disappearance of biodiversity, pollution and climate change are just some contradictions. How can we guarantee economical, environmental and social sustainability?

Pimby: “please in my back yard!”. I want a wind farm next to my home, solar panels on my roof, an electric car, a smart system starting electric devices at specific times. I have worked in a coal mine my whole life and now will work as …? The world innovates constantly, and it requires citizens to change behaviors. What are the technology developments and how will they affect us in terms of culture, jobs and social acceptance?

With the liberalization of the energy markets we went from state owned monopolies to private competition. The creation of feed in tariff subsidies created the PV revolution. These developments were only possible through a change in regulation. Having citizens taking a more active role as prosumers, more conscious energy users and consumers will require more than a change in regulation. How much responsibility does fall on governance and how much on individual to achieve a society marked by awareness, empowerment and behavioral change? What is the relationship with the economic feasibility of the required changes?

What kind of policies need to be put in place? Join us and our experts for an informative journey on the nitty-gritties of European Climate policy, and let us take a stand as a CommUnity!

This year’s CommUnity Days will be held in the beautiful city of Lisbon, Portugal. Lisbon, being an effervescent, charming, cosmopolitan city, rich with history and culture is moving towards becoming a global entrepreneurial center focused on creating sustainable solutions. Lisbon is the perfect fit for this year’s event.

Our venue: Academia das Ciências de Lisboa

The venue for this this years event is Academia das Ciências de Lisboa (Academy of Sciences). To have a discussion around sustainability in an institution created to promote Science, doesn’t it sound just perfect? The venue also reflects the culture of Portugal with its iconic architecture and ambience. Have a look at the pictures above and decide for yourself.

About our hotels

 

One of the most underrated USP’s of this event is being able to meet new people and getting to know them beyond the confines of the event. It is said, networking happens the most outside the set boundaries; be it sharing a table during the breakfast or a cab ride to the event venue etc. It is these little moments which tend to have the biggest impact. And to facilitate this, we have on board two wonderful venues for accommodation. Choose to opt in for accommodation for an all-round enriching experience.

 

Note: Shuttle travel between the Hotel and the event venue will be arranged (25 min one way). Preferences on hotel will be based on first come, first served basis.
