Our Hungarian Living Lab held a focus group in Nyírbátor with several participants to discuss the local challenges in the northern part of the area on September 11th, 2020.
There is no general solution when it comes to deal with energy poverty, as every community faces its own challenges. During this focus group, participants and hosts discussed the local challenges in the northern part of Nyírbátor city (Hungary) with colleagues from the “Secured Beginning” programme. Besides raising the energy awareness of the households, we also have to help the community to solve their problems with energy utilities. The first step is thus to grant safe energy access to those who join our programme. The continuous dialogue between local NGOs is a key factor in the success of any community support programme.
