Health crisis. Geopolitical crisis. Economic crisis. The current model has shown its limits, generating increasing instability and precarity. The multiple crises we are going through make it urgent to rethink the social contract, the role of the state in the economy and the way of managing the problems we face. A new paradigm of thinking and action is needed at all levels, at European, national and local level. Solutions can only come from innovative and courageous political thinking, which proposes a review of the current model and solutions like business as usual.
In this context, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation Romania organizes the series of debates "Cities for all", in which we aim to create, together with our guests, a progressive and inclusive vision of the main problems we are going through as a society during this period.
We invite you to a new discussion in this series on December 5, on the topic of heating in Bucharest in the context of the energy crisis. The problem of heating becomes an unavoidable emergency, given that almost 50% of the apartments connected to the centralized heating system in the Capital have problems with hot water and heat. The primary network has about 1,000 kilometers of pipes, of which about 15% have been replaced so far. According to some estimates, at the current pace of investments, the municipal company Termoenergetica will finish rehabilitating the networks in 125 years. This winter, the Tei and Aviatiei neighborhoods in Bucharest risk having the biggest problems with hot water and heat, therefore special attention in the discussion will be given to these cases.
Together with our guests Corina Murafa, Catiușa Ivanov and Ramiro Anghelescu we will discuss the problems related to heating in Bucharest. The discussion will be moderated by Victoria Stoiciu, program coordinator within FES Romania.
The discussion will take place starting at 18.00 at Londohome, 31 General David Praporgescu Street.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the event!
