How the initiative has started, who is in your team and what projects you are doing?
This is a collaboration unity project for initiative people in various regions of the country. Our participants are energetic people that are aiming on development of their surrounding spaces and environment. Today, there are two types of people within the initiative: those who are connected with the sphere of energy efficiency from various civil, scientific and media backgrounds. And those who have other backgrounds yet they are motivated to improve the surrounding space. Our core team consists of main activists who were energetically active for a long perioud of time: Andrey Fedotov, who has initiated some media and anticorruption projects, me, where i was involved in social and energy efficiency projects etc
Our projects are aiming on popularization of proper usage of resources and development of proactivity and activism among local communities. In particular we are aiming of creation a collaborative network of activists among Ukraine with educative and development purposes. Our main aim is to unite various initiatives in the region and further on in our main spheres of interests, and than spreading/teaching/developing them. In particular we have made couple of energetic hackatons, energy efficiency contests, urban development and planning within Odessa region, scientific and civil meet ups etc. Right now initiative is co-organizing Odessa Energy Day within “Electronics/Energetics Fair”. There we are initiating a contest on the leader of energy efficiency within the corporate establishments of the region.
