MySmartCityDistrict is a collaboration among seven smart cities projects (R2CITIES, EU-GUGLE, ZenN, CITyFiED, SINFONIA, City-Zen and READY) involving 22 districts belonging to 21 cities from 12 different countries.
The MSCD Cluster project joined the EUSEW 2015 Energy Days by organizing Open Houses at their demo sites throughout Europe. The aim of the EU Sustainable Energy Week is to disseminate best practices, inspire new ideas and build alliances to help meet the EU’s energy and climate goals by displaying activities on energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions.
The Open House events will include a range of activities to engage with residents, citizens, local communities, public authorities and other stakeholders about key milestones of the project to come and the intended final benefits.
Two-fold benefits can also be raising awareness about tangible benefits of energy efficiency measures being deployed, connecting with the entire supply-chain and support stakeholders, from local politicians and financing bodies to sub-suppliers and construction teams.
CITyFiED Torrelago and Linero districts will propose activities during the week 15th-19th of June 2015 at their demo sites.
In the framework of the Open House, the Linero team will organise guided tours in the district for the citizens, the municipal staff and other interested parties. The Torrelago district will focus on energy and kids by inviting schools to visit the biomass boiler room and the building and by preparing an ´energy game´ together with the school teachers. Torrelago will also organise guided tours for citizens.
