IMAGINE singled out as finalist of the RegioStars Awards 2015

By Miriam Eisermann on 28 July 2015

The RegioStars Awards Jury singled out 17 finalists from 143 projects supported by EU cohesion policy funds. Four key criteria were used to select the outstanding projects: innovation, impact, sustainability and partnership. The "IMAGINE low energy cities" project was honoured in the "City Star" category.

This is an extraordinary recognition of the IMAGINE project. The shortlisting of IMAGINE underlines the importance for cities to undertake participatory visioning processes. Together with local stakeholders, cities define the pathway of their energy transition. The cities involved in the project (Munich, Bistrita, Dobrich, Lille, Milton-Keynes, Modena, Figueres and Odense) have been reflecting on their own governance practices. They explore on how best to integrate their climate and energy policies in their overall urban development strategy.

This shows that the energy transition is by far not only a technological challenge, but that governance, people, dialogue, political courage and cross-cutting approaches play a key role for cities and citizens.

In the framework of the IMAGINE project, the 8 pilot cities have developped Local Energy Roadmaps to 2050, using innovative methods and tools to involve citizens and stakeholders in the process!
