"The call of the countryside" Rural Citizen Sessions 2030

Informative sessions on energy

Red Eléctrica contributes to the dissemination of knowledge regarding the functioning of the electricity system by encouraging participation in conferences and training/informative sessions.

Red Eléctrica promoted the cycle of online seminars in May 2020 “The call of the countryside” as part of the Rural Citizen 2030 social innovation initiative. Its goal was to promote the rural sector through four main objectives: to show the potential of villages as places to lead fulfilling lives, to connect agents with the capacity to set up initiatives, to collaborate in creating new opportunities and to drive sustainable development in alignment with the SDG.

The first session started with over 300 participants and the presence of Antonio Calvo, Manager of Sustainability Area, at the inaugural conference on the entrepreneurial project “HolaPueblo”, who stressed the important of promoting specific projects.

“The call of the countryside” combined conferences, inspirational talks and activities for connecting and interacting. It is an initiative for promotion, debate and action in seven areas of discovery: connect, promote, educate, live, participate, appreciate and invest.
