SEACAP 4 SDG organized a co-creation workshop to select the energy renovation measures to implement in Tunisia


The Mediterranean Renewable Energy Centre (MEDREC), partner of SEACAP4SDG, organized, in collaboration with the Agency Atmospheres ADD, a co-creation workshop on “Building energy renovation measures implementation based on a Living Lab approach”. The workshop was hosted by the Municipality of Bizerte on the 08th of June 2023.

The workshop gathered the stakeholders identified in Tunisia to present the methodology proposed for the creation and implementation of a Living Laboratory and to discuss solutions for planning energy management measures proposed to the municipality of Bizerte.
 During the event were also presented the 3 winning projects of the challenge organized at the National School of Architecture and Urbanism (on 10-12 May 2023) including innovative and eco-sustainable energy renovation solutions customized for the building of Bizerte Municipality.
The Municipality of Bizerte, as main beneficiary as well as the rest of stakeholders discussed the different scenarios presented and will be able to decide on the final set of renovation measures based on an evaluation grid set by the project team in Tunisia.

The second part of the workshop focused on introducing to the stakeholders the concept of “Green Nudging” which is a behavioral science applied to promote environmentally sustainable behaviors, and which is being widely promoted to encourage energy conservation and altering energy use choices. 
Finally, the project team launched a “Green Nudge challenge”, addressing the stakeholders to be formed in teams, to present:

  • moral appeal: each team will have to imagine 3 phrases to encourage users to behave better.
  • a visual sticker: each team will have to create 1 or more sticker(s) based on the principles of behavioral psychology

The results of this challenge will be presented in an upcoming workshop.
