renewable Alleviating energy poverty: Policies and measures in the EU [EEA11]
Alleviating energy poverty: Policies and measures in the EU [EEA11]
10 Jul 2024
Leonardo ENERGY
Energy poverty is a multifaceted issue that extends beyond income poverty. It refers to the inability of households to secure adequate energy services, including heating, cooling, lighting, and powering appliances. Detecting, measuring, and addressing energy poverty requires understanding regional variations, vulnerable groups, and the interplay of affordability and access. This is particularly important at a time when electricity and heat prices are already high, and in many countries, they are expected to rise even further after the cessation of temporary energy subsidies. During this webinar, Paweł Gilewski of the Polish National Energy Conservation Agency (KAPE) provides an overview of how energy poverty is reflected in current energy efficiency policies and measures implemented in the EU Member States, based on the MURE database. The session will address questions such as: What strategies can policymakers implement to alleviate energy poverty? Why is energy poverty challenging to detect and quantify? How can low energy efficiency in dwellings exacerbate energy poverty? How does the availability of different energy sources impact energy poverty? Speaker: Paweł Gilewski, Polish National Energy Conservation Agency (KAPE)

Afterwards, we open the floor for input. Participants are encouraged to share their (prepared) interventions to ensure the conference’s reporting is as comprehensive as possible. Speakers: Frazer Goodwin, European Public Health Alliance, Senior Communications & Advocacy Manager, Tanja Florath European Commission, DG JUST, Unit D2 Nondiscrimination, Policy Officer Mila Paspalanova, OHCHR, Anti-racial discrimination advisor Jacqueline Bowman-Busato, Adipositas Pact, Co-Founder, Engagement and Projects Lead ABOUT THE EVENT: Racism and discrimination are fundamental determinants of health, profoundly affecting physical and mental well-being. They are far-reaching systemic issues, creating environments where marginalised communities face continuous social and economic challenges. Addressing these determinants is crucial for achieving health equity and ensuring that all individuals have the opportunity to realise their Right to Health as defined in Article 12 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. This two-day DisQo Stakeholder Network conference, organised by EPHA and OHCHR in cooperation with Artikel 1 Midden Nederland and De Hofnar Present B.V., brings together leading experts and stakeholders to address the pervasive issues of racism, discrimination, and their profound impacts on health, with a specific focus on People of African Descent. Through insightful case studies, panel discussions, and interactive sessions, participants will explore the intersection of these critical areas, share best practices, and develop actionable strategies to promote health equity. Join us in advancing the dialogue and fostering collaborative efforts to combat racism and improve health outcomes for all.

Mushroom Farming Finland, FOODLEVERS-project
14 Jun 2024
European Forest Institute
In this video, Erkki Pöytäniemi explains how mushroom cultivation works in practice. Forest cultivation of shiitake mushrooms makes efficient use of forestry by-products such as small-diameter low value trees from thinning which are normally used as bioenergy or pulp trees. These tree logs can also be used as a cultivation substrate for shiitake mushrooms (and also other mushroom species such as chaga, reishi (also known as lingzhi) and oyster mushrooms) and in this case the added value per tree log can be markedly higher. Another advantage is that forests which are normally only used for wood production, now also produce edible mushrooms. In this way, forest farming can be an ecologically friendly way of food production as it increases land use efficiency. This video was produced in the context of the FOODLEVERS project which ran in 2020-2024. Find out more about the project at https://www.foodlevers.org/

Public procurement stands out as a decisive, high-impact lever that cities can use to lead by example by purchasing goods and services that support the transition to a circular economy. While a growing number of Circular Cities Declaration signatories are reporting using more circular practices in their procurement processes, there are still challenges with mainstreaming the approach across product categories and departments. This CCD webinar will examine best practice examples and tools that cities across Europe have used to implement a more circular approach to public procurement. Support partners and CCD signatories will present tools, such as a circular food procurement pledge, innovation procurement procedures, and LCA to support the use of circular procurement in their cities and regions.

The fiscal theory of the price level states that inflation results from more government debt than people believe will be repaid. In his remarks to the IIEA, Dr Cochrane explains the idea, and uses it to understand the surge of inflation in 2021-2022, why that inflation went away without restrictive monetary policy and a recession, the strange quiet of the zero bound era, and the rise and fall during the 1970s and 1980s. Dr Cochrane also discusses his new book, The Fiscal Theory of Price Level. About the Speaker: John H. Cochrane is the Rose-Marie and Jack Anderson Senior Fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. His publications include the book The Fiscal Theory of the Price Level and Asset Pricing. He has written articles on monetary policy, inflation, asset markets, macroeconomics, health insurance, time-series econometrics, financial regulation, and other topics.

Today, nearly four in five Africans still cook their meals over open fires and traditional stoves, using wood, charcoal, animal dung, and other polluting fuels. This has dire impacts on health, gender equality and the environment, with women and children bearing the worst consequences. The IEA was the first international agency to start tracking energy access more than two decades ago and has been a steadfast voice advocating for clean cooking access ever since. The Summit will be co-chaired by the President of the United Republic of Tanzania H.E. Dr Samia Suluhu Hassan, the Prime Minister of Norway H.E. Jonas Gahr Støre, the President of the African Development Bank Group Dr. Akinwumi A. Adesina and the Executive Director of the International Energy Agency Dr. Fatih Birol.

digital Leveraging LLMs for advanced spatial decision support: The case of SATGPT
Leveraging LLMs for advanced spatial decision support: The case of SATGPT
28 Mar 2024
AI for Good
Large Language Models (LLMs) have revolutionized numerous aspects of modern life, demonstrating remarkable capabilities in language processing, code generation, and knowledge synthesis. Their potential extends to supporting the achievement of various Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), offering innovative approaches to tackling complex global challenges. One promising application area is the mapping and monitoring phenomena measurable through Earth Observation (EO) data. It's estimated that around 40 of the 169 SDG targets and 30 of the 232 SDG indicators could benefit from the insights provided by the EO data analysis. The use of artificial intelligence (AI) for EO data analysis can further improve the number of SDG indicators that can be monitored with a higher accuracy and frequency. In this context, research is underway to develop multimodal LLMs capable of directly processing EO data. However, these models are often computationally expensive to train, develop, and maintain, making them less feasible for low-capacity, high-risk countries that urgently need technological solutions for disaster mitigation. To address this challenge, we introduce SATGPT (accessible at satgpt.net), an innovative solution that leverages the current capabilities of LLMs and integrates them with cloud computing platforms and EO data. SATGPT represents a fully functional, innovative spatial decision support system designed for rapid deployment, particularly in resource-limited contexts. This webinar presents an instance of SATGPT configured for flood mapping, as an example. It simplifies the process with a user-friendly interface requiring only a prompt specifying flood duration and location. SATGPT leverages LLMs to generate GEE code dynamically, access historical databases, or perform unsupervised classification to detect flooded areas. This innovative integration of LLMs with GEE enhances the speed, accessibility, and real-time capabilities of flood mapping, making it more accessible to non-specialists and supporting resilient disaster management practices. Furthermore, to build the capacity to use these technologies effectively, the talk discusses the development of an online, free, and self-paced course titled Introduction to Geospatial Data Analysis with ChatGPT and Google Earth Engine. This course introduces participants to the fundamentals of ChatGPT and the Earth Engine Code Editor platform, empowering them to process and interpret geospatial data effectively outside the SATGPT. The innovative aspect of the course is developing the Geo-prompt engineering (GPE) concept, which focuses on using spatial, temporal, and satellite sensor-specific information in the prompt engineering process. The course aims to foster broader adoption of SATGPT and similar tools, equipping users with the knowledge and skills needed to leverage advanced technologies in disaster management. This talk is structured to provide a comprehensive overview of SATGPT and its contribution to enhancing flood mapping and disaster management in the Asia-Pacific region.

Democracy tour: The eleventh hour to strengthen democracy in the EU
21 Mar 2024
Bruegel
On February 28, the Vice President of the European Commission for Values and Transparency, Věra Jourová, embarked on a strategic initiative known as the Democracy Tour, commencing in Helsinki. Since the launch, she visited several EU member states and met with the representatives of governments, business, and civil society to discuss achievements and remaining gaps in building resilience against foreign malign influence and autocratisation in EU member states, especially in the lead up to the European parliamentary elections. The quest for robust democratic resilience necessitates an integrated approach, incorporating a wide range of defensive mechanisms. These must address both digital and traditional challenges our countries face today, including tackling information manipulation, strategic corruption, undue influence over media ownership, and cybersecurity threats. Despite significant progress in strengthening the EU'sand its member states’ resilience through legislative measures, direct confrontation of adversaries, media literacy campaigns, and various national initiatives, the degree of resilience remains uneven across the Union. How do the existing arsenal of tools at the EU’s and its member states’ disposal fare to safeguard democracy? What are the key achievements of the outgoing Commission in reinforcing the democratic foundations of the European Union? What are the remaining weak spots and how can we tackle them in the future? At this event Vice President Věra Jourová shared preliminary reflections from her Democracy Tour in the ongoing effort to strengthen democratic resilience amidst the complex challenges that confront us today.

AI for Good
AlphaGeometry, a novel theorem prover for Euclidean plane geometry, overcomes the challenges of machine learning in mathematical domains. Unlike current approaches limited by the high cost of translating human proofs into machine-readable format, and often by a severe scarcity of training data, 100 million theorems and proofs were synthesized for AlphaGeometry to learn entirely from scratch. This system combines a neural language model with a symbolic deduction engine, efficiently navigating through complex problem-solving. Impressively, AlphaGeometry successfully solved 25 out of 30 recent Olympiad-level problems, surpassing previous methods and nearing the capabilities of an International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) gold medalist. It also produced human-readable proofs, excelled in all IMO 2000 and 2015 geometry problems under expert review, and discovered a new version of an IMO 2004 theorem.

The river Minho is a natural border between the north of Portugal and the region of Galicia in Spain. The river’s cross-border territory, which is comprised of natural spaces with a rich biodiversity and environment, is jointly managed by the two countries. However, it has been difficult to achieve smooth cross-border cooperation in this region in terms of management of these areas. National differences in the administration of these areas and a lack of coordination prevent the managing authorities from fully protecting and promoting these shared natural spaces.

The effort to build and maintain open digital infrastructure is a global endeavour. While Europe has been a proponent of open source for more than a decade, the potential for collaboration now extends beyond our continent, and this collaboration is starting to take place. As open infrastructures, ranging from digital payments to large language models, emerge globally, it’s crucial to avoid redundant efforts in different contexts. Europe is in a unique position to both learn from and lead alongside global counterparts, bridging policy, cultural, and technical divides. In this era, the definition of ‘digital commons’ and the responsibility of open source take on greater significance. Europe can assimilate global insights and drive pioneering solutions in this interconnected world. The question remains: do governments worldwide have the necessary capacity to fully leverage open source for the benefit of their citizens? And if not, how do we build that capacity?

EuropeanWomenLobby
The current political term has brought significant wins for women’s and girls’ rights in Europe, such as the European Commission’s first-ever female President with her historic cabinet made of an almost 50/50 gender parity team of Commissioners; the nomination of a Commissioner for Equality; the adoption of the long-awaited Women on Board Directive; a Directive on Pay Transparency; and a European Commission’s proposal on a Directive on Violence Against Women and Domestic Violence. The European Women's Lobby (EWL) believes that we must keep building on this momentum and safeguard women’s rights via functioning institutionalised mechanisms. The 2024 European elections will be a turning point for women and girls in Europe and for the European project. That is why it is essential to capitalise on the 2024 EU elections! It is only by acting together that we will successfully face the current challenges. Women are not only more than half of the population but also key agents of change; and it is with women’s inclusion and expertise that we can find appropriate solutions and operate on a socially, economically and environmentally fair transition. That is why, with this event, the EWL aims to reintroduce EWL’s campaign for the 2024 European Elections, sharing EWL’s vision for the new legislative term 2024 - 2029 as well as giving visibility to women’s rights. The EWL will invite key EU political figures and civil society representatives to debate the successes of the past term, the biggest challenges ahead, and the solutions to implement as well as their vision of a Feminist Europe.

Were they based on their capacity to leverage European funding or initiatives? 00:25:24 Q&A: You mentioned that projects or programmes that small urban areas are choosing are less ambitious or less complex than bigger cities. Do you think it is a problem or perhaps a good thing to do? 00:27:09 Q&A: You mentioned they are choosing smaller projects, even if they are ERDF funded. Do you think that it is because of the co-finance that needs to be provided or because of the nature of the projects that are being financed? 00:28:55 Q&A: From the case studies you presented, is there one town that did very well? And if so, why? 00:30:40 Q&A: Regarding sustainable urban development strategies, their implementation is not evenly covering EU territories, is there a. reason? 00:32:07 Q&A: Do you think one of the main problems is the lack of capacity, expertise, skills, and knowledge? 00:33:20 Presentation by Andrés Caballero Quintana from the Municipality of Las Palmas, Spain on Las Palmas Cuidad del Mar (ECORIS3 project) 00:46:12 Q&A: When you started thinking about the strategy in 2010, were you thinking of the blue economy and blue growth because you were expecting funding opportunities on the European level? 00:48:20 Q&A: You mentioned you mix different funding, and said that this was difficult. How did you do that? 00:51:00 Presentation by Egons Spalans from Ventspils City Council, Latvia on the Ventspils Digital Centre (SKILLS+ project) 01:12:41 Q&A: What were the main challenges to building those science centres through those types of funding? Panel discussion 01:14:03 Q&A: You outlined you have been using different types of funding. Is there any type of funding that worked particularly well?

Regulatory Leverage: How Can the EU Foster a Green Investment Shift?
16 Jan 2024
Ecologic Institute
The investment challenge is fundamental to mobilizing financial resources for the transformation toward climate neutrality. Every investment decision today locks us into a specific future - we must be careful about directing investment flows meaningfully. Maximizing green investments and providing predictability for economic actors need coordination at EU level and policies effectively promoting the transformation towards climate neutrality. Key policies should consider, among others, a long-term climate investment plan, securing adequate public funding and making sure the banking sector is implementing the existing regulations properly. What policies do we need to promote investment and finance in support of the EU’s climate ambition? In this 4th episode, together with investment and finance experts Julie Evain (I4CE) and Thomas Pellerin-Carlin (I4CE), we uncover the essential role of investment in climate policy by examining the EU’s role in mobilizing green investments for a resilient climate-neutral economy. We discuss how EU policies can provide predictability to economic actors and build a long-term vision towards climate neutrality. We also explore the role of the banking sector and the use of banks’ transition plans to make sure banks consider climate related risks and direct investments properly.

4p1000 Initiative
On the occasion of the UNFCCC COP 28 in Dubaï (United Arab Emirates), the 4 per 1000 Initiative: Soils for Food Security held the 6th 4 per 1000 Initiative Day on Wednesday, November 16th, 2022, in the Dubaï Dusit Conference Hall. The International Initiative 4 per 1000, launched by France on December 1st, 2015, at the COP 21, consists of federating all voluntary stakeholders of the public and private sectors (national governments, local and regional governments, companies, trade organizations, NGOs, research facilities, etc.) under the framework of the Lima-Paris Action Plan (LPAP). The Initiative aims to demonstrate that agriculture, particularly agricultural soils, can play a crucial role in food security and climate change. Supported by solid scientific documentation, this initiative invites all partners to state or implement some practical actions on soil carbon storage and the type of practices to achieve this (e.g., agroecology, agroforestry, conservation agriculture, landscape management, etc.). The initiative aims to encourage stakeholders to transition towards a productive, highly resilient agriculture based on the appropriate management of lands and soils, creating jobs and incomes, and ensuring sustainable development.

Welcome to the Safer Chemicals Podcast. In this episode, we explore an EU enforcement project that revealed concerning levels of banned chemicals in everyday consumer goods across Europe. The findings? A significant 18% non-compliance rate in various items like electrical devices, sports gear, toys, and fashion products. Join us as we discuss the project's key discoveries and recommendations with experts Karin Rumar and Maciej Baranski. They shed light on the presence of harmful substances like phthalates, lead, and cadmium in these items, and how enforcement measures were taken to address non-compliant products. The project's recommendations for industry emphasise the responsibility of companies in ensuring product safety. They advocate for heightened awareness, risk-based compliance checks, and stringent assessments to prevent hazardous chemicals in consumer goods.

Institutional discrimination & welfare access: legal advocacy for immigrants at local level in Italy
29 Nov 2023
Migration Policy Centre
This seminar investigated, with reference to the Italian context and the local level, on which base discriminatory rules have been introduced, which types of benefits or services are denied, in which ways local authorities try to combine formal respect to equality of treatment and the political purpose to exclude or disadvantage immigrants and refugees. This kind of discrimination stems from the relatively wide level of autonomy that local authorities enjoy in Italy and is connected with various policies of exclusion enacted in the last decades in Italy, since Italy discovered to have become a country of immigration and the issue began to be exploited on the political ground. Speaker: Maurizio Ambrosini (University of Milan).Chair: Clare Fox-Ruhs (Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, EUI).
