Children’s fight against energy poverty

31 May 2021

The project Children’s fight against energy poverty aims to get to know the lived experience of the children in Cañada Real and to identify and denounce the impacts of energy poverty in their lives but also to outline the advocacy process they have conducted and how they have taken part into the fight for energy justice. The project will be held with the support of local organisations and will contribute to raise public and policy awareness about the impacts of energy poverty on children’s lives and about the importance of giving them a voice in activism, advocacy and research.

‘This grant will enable me to look into one of the most terrible cases of energy exclusion and also to collaborate to raise children’s voices to claim for their energy rights.’
