To ensure the success of project implementation within the framework of the sustainable energy strategy, certain capacity reinforcement and awareness-raising actions for different sectors of the local population must be carried out. These include: • Lectures: organizing and facilitating a series of conferences and lectures given by professionals and experts. These meetings are meant for a diverse audience: local authorities, enterprises and the general public. The main objective is to educate local actors and encourage them to take action. • Workshops: holding thematic workshops on sustainable energy (energy consumption reduction, energy efficiency and renewable energies) that enrich Governorate (municipal) personnel’s knowledge on the subject and, thus, facilitate the SECAP’s implementation. Citizen awareness promotion plan The elaboration of the «Citizen Awareness Promotion Plan - CAPP» is meant to educate and inform the local population and stakeholders. It allows all actors to be involved in and contribute to the SECAP’s implementation. It could encompass several actions, including: • The creation of a permanent municipal information point; • The organisation of an open house; • The publication of articles in local and regional newspapers; • The distribution of brochures and posters; and • The distribution of an information letter that includes current events on sustainability as well as local success stories.
