The 14th Citizens Forum will facilitate the exchange of policies, measures, and practical solutions to help protect European consumers from the energy crisis. The event taking place in Dublin will also be live-streamed online for remote participation.
The 14th Citizens’ Energy Forum will take place in Dublin, Ireland. Citizens’ interest groups, NGOs, businesses, and policy-makers (ministries and regulators) will provide their input on energy consumer issues in the current energy crisis.
The Forum aims to facilitate the exchange of supporting policies, measures, and practical solutions to help protect consumers from high energy prices and control their energy bills among representations of consumers, policy-makers, and local actors.
Compared to previous editions, this forum will feature an enhanced citizen focus, taking stock of the actions of individuals and local actors to help citizens prepare for the difficult winter ahead, and considering what can be further done once the winter starts. The forum will focus on middle-income and low-income consumers and on solutions that they can have access to.
Back-to-back with the forum, two half-day events for specialised audiences at the EU and local level will take place: a regulatory roundtable, co-organised with energy regulators, and a citizen workshop in Ireland, co-organised with the Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers.
Where? The Chartered Accountants House in Dublin, Ireland.
When? Thursday, the 24th of November 2022, from 10.00 – 17.30 CET (09.00 – 16.30 local time).
The forum will be live web-streamed with the possibility for the audience to engage through Sli.do, where active participation will be facilitated through polls, citizen testimonies, inspiring examples of consumer actions, and lively discussions in breakout groups. Attendees can engage with the event on social media via the hashtag #En4Cit .
