Here you will find information on anything to do with the energy model, energy supply, energy saving and power generation, in fact, everything you need to know, in the three languages.
What is the Climate Emergency Marathon?
It is a campaign to raise awareness and encourage good practices in the use and consumption of water and energy. The financial savings achieved are then used to fight the climate emergency.
Why are we doing the Marathon?
Because we believe that it is very important for everybody that uses or works in municipal buildings and facilities to be aware of the energy, water and heating they consume and of the impact their actions have on climate change.
By paying more attention to how we consume energy, we will see how we can really reduce our footprint through small, everyday actions.
This action also aims to highlight the need to address the climate emergency
we are facing. Water and energy are finite resources and using them unnecessarily has serious consequences for the entire planet. Sorting waste properly and reducing energy consumption help mitigate the effects of climate change.
How does the Marathon work?
A total of seventy-two municipal buildings and facilities across all the city's districts will be taking part in the Marathon throughout the whole of February. This means that the people who work in them or use the facilities will have to pay extra attention to their water and energy consumption, and reduce or recycle the waste they produce.
We will monitor water, electricity and gas consumption and CO2 emissions on a weekly basis and see whether we have succeeded in reducing our consumption levels compared to previous years.
The resulting monetary savings will be used to fund the project to create community allotments on municipal rooftops, managed by a non-profit association.
