Day 2 (21st Feb): Identity and Energy Poverty. The different faces of vulnerability.

When thinking of how to solve socioeconomic problems such as energy poverty, it is fundamental to consider the lived experience of different groups. We will consider how characteristics such as gender, class, age, disability, and ethnic and racial identity interact with energy poverty, the impacts of not considering these (often intersectional) identity dimensions, and what that means for the solutions we take forward.

Day 4 (23rd Feb): Energy Poverty and Policy- Global Energy Crisis: From short-term reactions to structural changes

Despite many countries having found a quick response to enduring the current energy crisis, most policies are not sustainable in the long term. Deeper structural changes – in economies, in policies, in societies – might be necessary to help countries navigate through a new world order while preserving social stability. This session will explore possible approaches to energy policies that address economic, social, and technical challenges around the globe.
