Nadine emphasises the importance of citizen engagement to accelerate energy transition at district level. “Political visions and governmental structures at city level are the key to accelerate bottom-up approaches. At the same time, communication strategies need to be improved in order to ensure replicability (e.g. for successful private energy-efficiency measures in producing industries). Urgent municipal tasks such as the current need to provide affordable housing should not be seen as competing demands to climate adaptation or mitigation actions but should be considered as integrative strategies to become resilient for any unforeseen future demands.
