Energiewende twinning towns: Sharing knowledge and experience

Cities, towns and municipalities are pioneers of the energy transition. Climate protection knows no borders: The conclusion of the Energiewende twinning towns project once again shows how important European cooperation is for exchange and networking on the energy transition.

On the one hand, it is important to strengthen the European idea and promote understanding between European citizens. The best way to do this is to make new friends, cultivate old friendships and develop ideas together. On the other hand, we have to fundamentally restructure our European energy supply with the goal of 100 percent renewable energies. Climate and environmental protection go hand in hand with an independent energy supply and affordable prices for business and households.

The aim of the video is to capture the voices of those involved: Representatives from the Irish, Dutch, Polish, Greek and German partner cities as well as those responsible for the project report in Zoom interviews why they are participating in the project and what added value they gain from the exchange.
