Europe’s Energy Neighbourhoods program engaged neighbourhoods to ‘bet’ with their municipalities that they could reduce energy use by at least 9% over a four-month time period, with no investments in technology allowed. Each neighbourhood was supported by a trained “Energy Master”, and those groups that made savings of 9% or more were rewarded with certificates and prizes, and received local media attention for their efforts. Designation as a Tools of Change “Landmark” case study through our peer selection process recognizes behavior change programs and approaches considered to be among the most successful, innovative, replicable and adaptable in the world. https://toolsofchange.com/en/case-studies/detail/726
