On 20 January from 10:30-12:00 CET, the SONNET project is switching things up. Instead of a traditional webinar, all are invited to join our ‘fishbowl discussion‘ (hosted on Zoom). This technique uses ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ circles to give everyone the opportunity to jump into a core discussion circle to have their voices heard and to engage directly with each other.
Register now to join in the discussion, which will feature representatives from Basel (Switzerland), Bristol (United Kingdom), Grenoble (France), Mannheim (Germany), and Warsaw (Poland), as well as Prof. Dr. Marta Strumińska-Kutra, an expert from Kozminski University (and the SONNET team!).
The discussion will explore ‘collaborative governance arrangements‘: what that means, how cities use collaborative governance to support social innovations in energy (SIEs), and what these arrangements practically mean for cities, people and local organisations. The discussion will be guided by recent SONNET research into how SIEs are governed, including a new ‘governance typology’.
The webinar will include an:
- Introduction to the project, the agenda, and the fishbowl format;
- Expert presentation on encouraging SIE through collaborative governance arrangements;
- Moderated Q&A among city representatives; and an
- Open fishbowl discussion: the audience will be invited to join the discussion, guided by questions posed by the moderator and experts.
This question of what (governance) approaches cities can take to support social innovation in energy is a huge topic with a lot to unpack. We hope you will join the discussion to unpack it alongside the SONNET team.
