The sufficiency project at eceee's Summer Studies
The energy sufficiency project was featured at eceee's 2017 Summer Study entitled Consumption, efficiency & limits! 3–8 June we're bringing sufficiency to the 2019 Summer Study in Presqu'ïle de Giens, France.
Energy sufficiency was a key theme of the 2017 eceee summer study. Participants enjoyed plenary presentations from Prof Tim Jackson and Yves Marignac and were invited to participate in a workshop run by the eceee energy sufficiency project. The workshop focused on how people react to the idea of energy sufficiency: is it seen as a good thing or a bad thing. The aim was to think about how it can best be presented in a positive way to people who are new to the idea, and how negative reactions can be overcome.
