The cross-border area concerned is a single and compact cross-border area that has similar characteristics and challenges. Challenges it tackles: Energy is the factor with the most significant impact on the economic and tourism development, being an essential element of sustainable development, therefore the efforts made by each of us to improve the way we use energy must become a priority. But till today renewable energy sources have a minimal role in the current energy structure.
Energy education is fundamental and is the long-term solution to cultivate people’s green living senses. Besides, there are great needs in communities/small cities and villages in making the effective decisions in saving energy and using the renewable resources of energy. The project makes great contribution to the global GHG emission reduction with implemented pilots aimed to protect the environment and its resources.
The overall objective of the project is to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy sources through education activities in Universities and communities aimed at sustainable use of the environment in border regions.
The following achievements and changes will be reached as a result of project realization: Improved regional situation of sustainable use of the environment in the cross-border area because of the effective and innovative energy solutions in communities provided as a result of cooperation with Universities and professional institutions. The following results are expected:
1. Increased capacities in renewable resources of energy in communities and educational institutions in border regions
2. Population of border regions served by new Energy infrastructure in HU,SK,RO,UA. 3 pilot communities in each country: appr. 15000 pers.
3. Raised awareness of the population by providing new educational sessions and informational exchange. The project proposes the innovative approach based on cooperation: Universities- Self-Governments - NGOs- Communities.
