[27.04.22] Looking back at the International Energy Poverty Action week

The ENPOR project was delighted to be involved in the organisation of the very first International Energy Poverty Action week, which took place from 21st-25th February 2022.

The week saw 350 registrants from 50 countries sign up for a week of seminars focussed on energy poverty action and ending energy poverty, with a different regional focus each day. 

This grassroots-led voluntary initiative was the first of its kind to look at actionable global solutions to energy poverty, harnessing the knowledge of speakers from around the world and enabling Global South voices to be highlighted in the debate. 

The week also included a Twitter Storm focussed around the #RightToEnergy and #EnergyPovertyAction hashtags, involving academics, politicians, activists and practitioners, to raise the profile and awareness of energy poverty. The hashtags were used over 1500 times and trended 20th in the world and 1st in Belgium.
