EU Sustainable Energy Week kicks off in Ukraine

On 2 October 2021, the city of Ternopil hosted the opening the 12th EU Sustainable Energy Week in Ukraine, organised with the support of the EU Delegation to Ukraine. 

The event took place in the framework of the communication campaign to support the European Green Deal under the motto ‘Boosting Green Potential Together’, scheduled until December.

A number of seminars on climate change, energy efficiency and decarbonisation took place in Ternopil, involving mayors from the Association of Energy Efficient Cities of Ukraine, the city authorities, homeowners’ associations and EU representatives.

Ternopil citizens and visitors enjoyed outdoor events in the city centre: a bicycle race   including on locally made e-bikes, and a ‘scientific picnic’ on environment and energy, offering an interactive exhibition of energy technologies. EU projects in Ukraine also presented their activities in the field of green transition.

In a ‘No Garbage City’ zone, children were invited to interactive master classes on separate waste collection and disposal of used batteries, as well as on creating handmade products from recycled materials.

The EU Sustainable Energy Week will last until 29 October 2021.
