FIESTA event

The 25th edition of ICLEI's long-running Breakfast at Sustainability's series will be held on Tuesday 5 September, focusing on the work of the EU-funded FIESTA project. ICLEI is hosting the event in association with project coordinator AREA Science Park Trieste.


FIESTA helps families with children to save money and lower their carbon footprint by reducing the amount of energy they consume. It aims to achieve this by teaching families to make better energy choices, such as purchasing higher rated electrical appliances, choosing efficient cooking methods, and optimising natural light in homes.

The event will take place from 9.30am – 12.30pm followed by a sustainable networking lunch in Brussels (Belgium). Experts will present the results of the FIESTA project and will discuss how greater energy efficiency can be achieved through behavioural change.

Speakers include Carina Toernblom, Director of the Consumer Directorate, European Commission DG JUST, and Fabio Tomasi, Project coordinator, AREA Science Park Trieste.

The programme is available to view here.
