ES: O4E (Egalitarian Societies: Opportunities for Everyone)
“ES: O4E” promotes social equality by carrying out various real-world, social projects like supporting vulnerable social groups, providing education to improve habits about responsible consumption and improving public spaces (cities and buildings).
The activities within these projects include designing technological solutions to social problems, carrying out social services in contact with vulnerable groups as well as developing studies and research to detect social and sustainability problems.
Thereby the most important (vulnerable) target groups of “ES: O4E” are elderly people, refugees, road victims, young people with some kind of dependency or without means to study as well as people suffering from energy poverty.
Other projects of “ES: O4E” focus on sustainability, such as rational food consumption, energy and water consumption in buildings, regenerating urban environment, improving public spaces of our municipalities and sensory rehabilitation of buildings.
