A new event for promoting EE in Italy with a focus on the use of light and electricity took place in Trieste on 15 February 2013: “M’illumino di meno 2013 - MI DIVERTO (E IMPARO) DI PIÙ”. GovernEE was represented by its Italian partner institute CETA...

To coincide with the National Italian Initiative “M’illumino di meno” (“I lighten less”), the Imaginary Science Center of Trieste proposed an extraordinary later hours with special activities in the evening dedicated to energy saving and energy efficiency for the public.
