SEARCH FOR TRANSFORMATIVE ACTIONS - 110

Actívate+ / Aktibatu+
Organisation : Plan de Acción Global para la Tierra (GAP España) , Spain

The Actívate+ project was launched in The Basque Country, by GAP España in conjunction with the local provincial government of Bizkaia and 6 other local partners. 

The aim was to enable local communities to transform through "actions", hence the name "Actívate+". The strategy was to engage local schools, the parents of the children and finally the rest of the community by offering various programmes to encourage change in relation to sustainability.  

Two GAP programmes were implemented: one aimed at reducing energy & waste in school buildings and the other at minimizing daily negative habits,  using the household as the focal point.

Seferihisar Renewable Energy Citizen Cooperative - Seyeko
City/Region : Seferihisar Municipality , Turkey

Seferihisar Municipality is one of the founding members of Seferihisar Renewable Energy Cooperative a.k.a. ‘Seyeko’, which will have around hundred members from Izmir and the neighbouring city, Manisa. The purpose of the cooperative is to build a solar energy field of between 500-100 mW in Seferihisar (İzmir Province, Turkey).

Collective energy production is a new concept in Turkey. There are around a dozen existing energy cooperatives, however Seyeko is determined to be the first cooperative starting energy production. 

 This is a bit strange – there are existing energy cooperatives, but none of them are producing energy?
