We are honoured to announce STEP-IN’s participation in the relaunching of the Hero at Home campaign, in collaboration with the UtilitEE, TripleA-reno, eTeacher, NRG2PEERS and Save the Homes projects. The campaign was originally launched in April 2020 and, after a break from June, is now officially relaunched.
Realising the increasing demand of working from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Hero at Home arises as an educational social media campaign aiming at providing the general public useful tips regarding home energy efficiency, indoor climate, and health. From STEP-IN, experiences from the Living Labs served as useful input for such educational content, helping not only those who are spending a lot of time indoors to be more energy efficient but also those who are considered energy-poor. The alignment between the objectives of the Hero at Home campaign and the STEP-IN project resulted in the inevitable collaboration between the two. STEP-IN joins the initiative as a project whose objectives align to those of the initiative.
