The PARENT project (PARticipatory platform for sustainable Energy managemenT) is a citizen-oriented research project empowering people to reduce their electricity consumption through energy monitoring, collaboration and information exchange. The project operates in Brussels, Amsterdam and Bergen. Have a look at the project’s website: http://www.parent-project.eu/
Some of the participants may be very familiar with theproject, having participated in the pilot or the steering committee. With others the project participants have struck up conversations along the way to exchange ideas on how to foster sustainable (behavioural) change in an urban context. A final few may be hearing about the PARENT project for the very first time.
The final conference of the project will take place in Brussels on Tuesday 4 June and Wednesday 5 June 2019. Whether you are an interested citizen, activist, politician, public administrator, entrepreneur or academic, we invite you to join our sessions on sustainability, technology and collaboration in Brussels.

- Tuesday (evening) 4 June: cocktail reception with project participants and politicians
- Wednesday (morning) 5 June: citizen workshops on smart, sustainable and collaborative city
