Time: 15.06.2022, 13:00

Place: Warta Room

Dialogue is one of the key foundations of any energy project developed in Poland. Building public acceptance is as important as technical and economic parameters, as it is essential to the success of the project.

The lecture will present and discuss the results of sociological research conducted in three voivodships – Pomorskie, Podkarpackie and Lubelskie. Their aim was to diagnose the level of knowledge, beliefs and opinions about wind farms. The case study will show what the research concludes, what the level of knowledge of local communities indicates, what the trends are, and how to put this knowledge into practice in public relations, media relations and public affairs activities to make success more likely and to reduce the risks arising from fear and ignorance.
