Webinar: Integrating research evidence on gender-energy nexus to achieve just and equitable outcomes in the African / European energy transition efforts

To maximise the contribution of Horizon Europe projects to create just, equitable and socially acceptable transition to carbon-neutrality for all, the EU LEAP-RE (Long-Term Joint European Union - African Union Research and Innovation Partnership on Renewable Energy) and the gEneSys (Transforming Gendered Interrelations of Power and Inequalities in Transition Pathways to Sustainable Energy Systems) projects hosted a joint webinar on 3rd June 2024 at 10:30 – 12:00 CEST.
