We are glad to introduce You to another project molded under Development Policy Foundation idea entitled "Moldovan 3G: Cutting-Edge , Scalable Hybrid Energy Integrator & Storage Hub for Public Facilities in Republic of Moldova". The project seeks to transfer and pilot implement a Makroterm Polish smart, adjustable, and hybrid Energy Integrator & Storage Hub: DROMADER 3G®. Solar collectors systems will be integrated with the existing 24 kw gas stove. The system that will be implemented provides a straightforward, reasonably priced, and energy-efficient way to encourage the Republic of Moldova to utilize green energy technologies.
Solar energy collectors, small energy buffer and integrator and heat pump will be installed in Primaria Antonesti (Antonesti Municipality).
The Moldovan 3G project is supported by

Marine capacity building session and visit to University of Namibia (Henties Bay Campus) were the closing activities of the delegation from Poland. During the session we talked about the potential of collecting water from fog - a method for capturing water from wind-driven fog as a substitute for freshwater in Namibia. Another technology that can be suitable for sustainable green urban spaces is water desalination based on thermal and membrane technologies. It is one of the most environmentally friendly alternative methods for supplying many towns and industrial sectors with fresh water obtained from seawater and brackish water.
Thank You for following the updates on the project entitled ‘Erongo Sustainable Governance LAB: Participatory Urban Governance For Resilient, Safe and Inclusive Multifunctional Public Spaces in Namibia’ and stay tuned for the following updates within the scope of the Project realisation.

Welcome back to our series of podcasts within the project «Causeni Agri-Hub: Community Cooling and Processing Fruits and Veggies Infrastructure».
In this episode, we had the immense pleasure to talk to Mr. Hubert Filipiak, the owner of the Ekojabłonka Company. Since 2018, the farm has had an organic certification, a truly clean product without any chemical residues. Hubert reflects on the reason he chose to switch to organic farming: not only was it economics and the growing tendency for organic products in Europe but also the ideology of bioproduction and eco-awareness.
There is no denying that in comparison with conventional fruits, ecological apples are forbidden to have even 0.1 milligrams of the residue of some pesticides in fruits. That is why, Hubert explains, it is also important to have an eco-friendly neighborhood for the farm.
Many thanks to Hubert Filipiak for sharing his experience and follow the link to listen to the whole story!

We would like to bring Your attention to the new Project within Horizon Europe Energy Programme entitled FORTESIE, which aims to bring renovation green technologies to the building industry. Those technologies include prefabricated facades, BIPV, heat pumps, digital technologies for measurement and verification, and attractive financing (e.g. engagement techniques, green-euros, etc.).
Athens hosted our first Kickoff meeting, and we couldn't be more excited to start this amazing journey with 25 partners from all over Europe!

The next podcast was conducted with the chairman of the Young Agrarians’ Society of the Czech Republic David BROŽ. We will discuss farm climate adjustment solutions such as bio belts, agroforestry, and blind stream branches. Bio belts are one of the most popular climate adjustment solutions. They cost about 100 or 200 euros for seeding material and the changes can be seen in one or three months. It depends on whether you do it in the spring or in the autumn and what kind of plants you use for that. David describes the next solution - agroforestry - as a “long-distance run”. It's quite cheap, but it takes some time. Agroforestry helps to anti-water erosion and anti-wind erosion. Blind stream branches are used mainly to fight immense climate and preserve biodiversity.

The team from the Czerwonak, zobacz więcej and Development Policy Foundation accomplished the next major milestone during the explanatory and introductory session of the Good Governance Academy in Namibia, Walvis Bay.
The participating municipalities Municipality of Walvis Bay Swakopmund Municipality , Municipality of Henties Bay began developing their own project proposals, among which the best 24 graduates will visit Poland for a shadowing.
The elements of the space's multifunctionality and accessibility with universal design for all resident groups, public communication using modern online tools, public initiatives, educational campaigns on waste segregation, and participatory budgeting demonstrate the Good Governance Academy's ideas of transparency and equitable cross-sectoral cooperation.
