Online session: How to create programs that improve health and eliminate energy poverty

What are the challenges and successful approaches to design programs that improve health, wellbeing and equality for people affected by energy poverty? WELLBASED and URBANOME co-organises this session to explore what can be done better to tackle energy poverty and health questions in cities as part of the Nature of Cities Festival.
