ECN is proud to announce that it is partnering with The URBAN FUTURE global conference, Europe’s largest event for sustainable cities. ECN has been working for many years on issues of funding local energy transition and collaborated with municipalities and regional development on funding a sustainable future. We have facilitated the dialogue between crowdfunding platforms, regional authorities and European institutions, with the aim of encouraging a joint effort towards the design and implementation of innovative funding schemes.
URBAN FUTURE is will allow us and our members to meet changemakers from all over the world, explore potential collaboration and engage with policy makers from regional and municipal level with regard to sustainable finance solutions for the energy transition. Cities are key to a sustainable future of our planet. Significant changes are necessary to fight the negative impact from climate change and avoid increasing social inequalities. As in crowdfunding, technology is a tool to driving change, but the it is the people that make the change happen. We know that crowdfunding has a relevant impact on financing renewable energy solutions, regional development and social development.
