In 2022, the VI Summer School on Sustainability will be held in partnership with APREN – Associação Portuguesa de Energias Renováveis ​​and will promote problematization and reflection on the challenges that a new energy model as is currently recommended – based on the principles of sufficiency, efficiency , renewable sources, climate neutrality, justice and well-being – puts society. The war context makes the need to change our energy paradigm even more pressing and evident. During this intensive week, the themes of energy poverty, the rehabilitation of buildings, renewable and decentralized production, energy communities, but without forgetting prosumers, and the role that social sciences can play in the necessary change of practices that will have to happen and in the search for social balances that are as necessary as complex. The need for more challenging concepts such as sufficiency and the decoding of our complex system of energy use, which goes far beyond the fuels used for our mobility, will also be discussed.
