Partner Meeting with mobility parcours the 25th and 26th of October in Leipzig





Leipzig, 29.10.2018 - The project is about bringing employees of public authority from point A to point B – in a environmentally sustainable manner. In the end of October the fourth meeting of the international working group and the 5th meeting of the international steering committee will take place in Leipzig. The Aufbauwerk Region Leipzig is happy to be the host of this event. There will be ten partners from seven countries, around 30 people altogether. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss and control tasks that are done and to prepare new tasks. But that is not all..


A practical part of the meeting is the intermodal mobility parcours. This is a little workshop where different groups will manage a fictitious everyday commute in a foreign town with diverse means of transport. Normally here we have a learning or „wow“ effect through the methodologically reflected experience. But let‘s see.

Look back to the partner meeting the 8th and 9th of October 2018 in Pomurje Region (Slovenia)





The international, or better the interregional meeting took place in Moravske Toplice, a small town in the north eastern part of Slovenia. Like in Central Germany the 500 years of the Reformation where celebrated here in the last year, due to the fact, that the first protestant church of Slovenia was built here.

The pilot-investment of this region is an ensemble of a solar energy system, consisting of a solar e-tree and a photovoltaic system bench. Next to the purpose of power generation this ensemble is meant to show the young generation the purpose and necessitiy of renewable energy sources (cf. pictures). On the occasion of a peer review and a study visit of this investment we visited the modern school building next to the spot of the investment. The total ensemble of the investment and the school left a lasting impression on the partners. It was clear that the municipality is preparing itself for the future in a progressive way by using sustainable energy sources.

The 12 partner organisations of the Interreg Central Europe project RURES are mainly municipalities and Energy Agencies. They come from five regions and six different countries. To the meeting the partners brought their experts of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. Altogether we were 27 participants, we felt welcome by the host Local Energy Agency Pomurje and we had a fruitful discussion.
