Social inclusion and energy poverty in developed countries


Open debate


Target groups

Teachers, administrative and other non-teaching university staff, public administrators, professional groups, civil society representatives, general public



3rd year - 2nd semester



An open meeting with the general public will be proposed to the organizing committee of the cycle of debates held at the University of Florence since 2013. It is a cycle of open meetings for the general public to strengthen the link between the university and the local population where UNIFI teachers and researchers discuss issues of general interest linked to their disciplines. The cycle is titled “Incontri con la città: leggere il presente per capire il futuro” (Meetings with the community: reading the present to understand the future”) and it is held in the Great Hall of the university on Sunday morning, once a month. This event is also supported by the Municipality of Florence, therefore it is promoted with posters and flyers in the whole city. Furthermore, a mailing list of previous cycles’ participants is used to publicize the meetings. See the link


Our meeting intends to raise awareness on how energy poverty is spreading not only in old age classes of citizens but also in young cohorts. The causes of the phenomenon will be explained and suggestions to challenge it and to support vulnerable consumers will be described. A debate with the audience will follow.
