The Story

In 2015 the idea arose to develop a very special conference format in Murau/Austria. Primarily young people should be interested in the topic of the future of energy and low-threshold access to a conference with top-class speakers should be created. Another important component was the involvement of the population and the confirmation of the correctness of the path taken by Murau (the district of Murau produces three times as much electricity as it consumes). The energy camp is intended to be an interface between regionally built knowledge in the field of renewable energy and knowledge of experts and young interested people. The program of the energy camp is based on classic lectures and active discussion formats. The participants are actively involved in the discussion formats and the results of these are taken into account, among other things, in the conceptual phase for the subsequent energy camp.
