Past Events

For the end of this year, as part of the LIFE IP CARE4CLIMATE project, a Climate Café was hosted in the Domžale Library, and its programme was enhanced by an interesting lecture on ways to save energy in households.

The Climate Café recently stopped in Novo mesto, where the topic of energy saving in households was discussed in the atrium of the Miran Jarc Library.

On Saturday, 15 October, the Grando salt warehouse in Portorož hosted the second Climate Café as part of the events marking Piran’s municipal holiday.

The first of the Climate Café events took place on Monday, 19 September, as part of the LIFE IP CARE4CLIMATE project. The event was launched during European Mobility Week in cooperation with the European Commission in Slovenia and IPOP – Institute for Spatial Policies.

On Wednesday, 8 June 2022, the international conference entitled "With successful practices to climate neutrality", which was part of the LIFE IP CARE4CLIMATE project, took place at the Austria Trend Hotel in Ljubljana.

Thirty-three young people from all over Slovenia, aged 16–24, were faced with the challenge to reduce food waste in their households. Data from the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia showing that we produced some 68 kg of food waste per capita in 2018 provided a strong motivation for the participants.
