by Claire Roumet, Executive director of Energy Cities
Tradition dictates that we take Summer workbooks with us to the beach. This year however, it's just as school is starting up again that we need you to hand in your homework!

Poland is not known for being the strongest supporter of solar, wind and biomass. Instead, the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party is defending the country's last coal-fired power plant, called Ostro??ka C project, to ensure Poland's energy security. The government should encourage renewable strategies at the local level, cities say. We looked at energy strategies in Polish municipalities and found a lot of initiative, ingenuity and a big desire for change.

Games are meant to entertain us. But can we have fun while improving our abilities to learn, make decisions and collaborate to bring forward the energy transition? It seems possible thanks to serious games about climate and energy, which can educate citizens about pressing challenges and increase the ability of public officials to take action at the local level.
Serious games, whether board or video games, have been around for decades already. In schools for example, such games are used to (...)

What if your weekend getaway could damage your health?
by Sara Giovannini

The organisation Transport and Environment just released an infographic comparing the air pollution conditions in Europe's 10 most popular cities with the impacts of cigarettes smoke.
The parallel between the two sounds unusual but it is based on a research by Berkeley Earth, focusing on fine particulate (PM2.5) ? the most commonly used measure of air pollution levels. Indeed, when visiting a city, we spend most of the time outside and we are more exposed to the effects of air pollution. (...)
