Title: Initiative Risk:Dialog focuses on resources
We live in a society with a steadily rising demand for energy. This rising demand, an adequate energy supply, and energy efficiency were the topics of the Austrian initiative Risk:Dialog in the spring and summer of 2009. In various stages, citizens and experts explored ideas for action, raised consciousness and facilitated an interchange. The resulting energy communiqué with its 45 recommendations toward correct handling of energy, aimed at citizens, industry and government. This concluding document was presented to various decision-makers and thereby contributed to a general discussion.
