Right to Energy Forum 2023
February 21 - February 23
EAPN is honoured to participate in the launch of the Right to Energy Forum 2023, and raise the voice of people experiencing energy poverty in the ongoing energy and cost of living crisis.
Join us on 21 – 23 February 2023.
This year’s programme is filled to the brim with interactive sessions and inspiring talks from activists, experts, organisers, and government officials. Be sure to reserve your place, as tickets are based on availability.
With many Europeans already strained with the cost of living crisis, energy poverty is making headlines due to skyrocketing prices, forcing millions to make an unconscionable choice between eating and heating. This is a watershed moment for Europe. We must come together to ensure 2023 becomes a landmark year for tackling energy poverty, as well as implementing long-term solutions to shield the most vulnerable and prevent future energy crises.
Social justice should be at the core of the energy and climate transitions. Everyone has a right to clean, affordable energy and decent housing. Achieving a socially inclusive decarbonisation and ensuring affordable adequate housing are a collective responsibility. The Right to Energy movement is a people-powered movement that successfully challenges energy poverty in Europe since its formation in 2017
EAPN Europe will be hosting the following sessions:
- After the windfall tax: The next big ideas for a right to energy
- Climate Justice is Social Justice, Social Justice is Climate Justice
This year’s programme offers 3 days of discussions and interactive sessions with activists, politicians, environmental NGOs, trade unions, EU decision makers and solidarity collectives from across Europe to discuss energy poverty and its place in the social justice and climate movement as well as solutions to eradicate it.
