During the EU Green Week 2023, I-CHANGE partners and Living Labs are organising various partner events to increase awareness for addressing climate change and promoting a sustainable behavioural change.
The EU Green Week is an important annual event that gathers together policymakers, environmentalists, stakeholders and other interested parties from across Europe and the globe to improve the understanding of environmental policies. This year, it takes place between Saturday 3 June and Sunday 11 June.
Throughout the week, a series of events are organised on the topics of skills for sustainable, resilient and socially fair communities to futher encourage stakeholders and general public to take stronger action for a sustainable future.
In this latter context, the I-CHANGE project – which aims at promoting a behavioural change through citizen science initiatives which are using sensors – is planning some activities both organised by project partners within their Living Labs and together with other sister projects. The partners events are taking place on 7-8 of June in different places in Europe or online and will mainly focus on the importance of inclusiveness and citizens’ involvement for having a strong impact on the environment.
