    Resumen:

    The webinar will provide participants with an overview of government strategies in developing a better public understanding and awareness to increase energy conservation and efficiency. The webinar will offer three case studies that showcase structural shifts in addressing skills deficits and creating new jobs that will arise in businesses that are expected to grow as economies go greener, and thus triggering green investment, technological innovation, and entrepreneurship.
    The case study conducted for the Montserrat Ministry of Communications, Works, Energy & Labour offers a comprehensive consumer energy outreach and awareness strategy that aims to educate and engage the general public, in order to drive Montserrat as a whole towards a sustainable energy future and effect long-term change in local attitudes towards energy usage.
    The case study conducted for the Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (RCEs) in Albania will provide an overview of options for pursuing residential energy savings strategies and key intervention areas for homes, condominiums and apartments.
    The case study conducted for the Ministries of Education and Energy in the Eastern Caribbean States and the Bahamas presents a program that was designed to educate and raise awareness on energy and climate literacy among educators and to strengthen institutional and educational capabilities in the educational system.
