Participatory Ethnography in ENTRACK


The ENTRACK initiative champions local and regional involvement in energy planning, underpinned by our commitment to equitable energy solutions. Our participatory ethnography, led by Kilowatt—a cooperative based in Bologna, Italy—aims to understand and integrate the community’s perspectives on energy planning.

Climate Explorers: Who Are They?

The Climate Explorer group consists of partners and citizens from our pilot areas who engage in a comprehensive analysis of energy transition issues. This group is made up of:

  • Focal Points: Key individuals from technical partners and pilot municipalities guiding the process.
  • Volunteers: Engaged community members contributing to research and data collection.


  • Training: Focal Points are trained on using a specialized ethnographic toolkit designed by Kilowatt, which is translated into local languages to facilitate widespread use.
  • Research: From April to September, the team conducts interviews and distributes surveys, dedicating about 8 hours per month to gather insights on community energy needs and perceptions.


The insights gathered by Climate Explorers inform the development of socially just and region-specific energy policies, ensuring that local perspectives are central to ENTRACK’s strategy.
