PRACSIS and Media Basket team up in Sofia

PRACSIS and PR Concepti organise an exciting week of events in Tallinn

On 5 and 6 February 2018—just four days after its event in Bucharest—PRACSIS was in Sofia to organise the 21st European Forum on Eco-innovation. This edition of the two-day EU conference focused on solutions for improving air quality and was held at the Sofia Science and Technology Park in the John Atanasoff building (named for the American physicist of Bulgarian decent who is credited with inventing the first electronic digital computer). The conference was made possible with the assistance of Sofia-based EURACSIS firm Media Basket. With high-level speakers such as Bulgarian Minister for Environment Nino Dimov and EU Director-General for Environment Daniel Calleja, the forum set an attendance record with over 500 people!


Big turnout in Bucharest for EU conference on financing energy efficiency

PRACSIS and PR Concepti organise an exciting week of events in Tallinn

With the help of EURACSIS agency Propaganda Consulting, PRACSIS organised its seventh public event for Sustainable Energy Investment Forums, the European Commission programme that aims to boost financing for energy efficiency in EU member states. The event took place on 01 February 2018 in Bucharest and was organised by the European Commission’s DG Energy and EASME in partnership with

  • the Romanian Ministry of Energy,
  • the Romanian Ministry of Regional Development, Public Administration and European Funds,
  • the Romanian Energy Regulatory Authority, and
  • the UN Environment Finance Initiative.

The event had more than 40 speakers—including Romanian Minister for Energy Anton ANTON (pictured, right) and state secretary Mihaela Virginia TOADER (pictured, left)—and was attended by 200 people, with plenaries as well as smaller breakout sessions for more in depth discussion. Around twenty Romanian media outlets—print, TV, and radio—covered the event.


PRACSIS and RESET PR cooperate on two important events in Paris

PRACSIS was busy in Paris in December 2017 organizing two events for the European Commission. The first was DG Environment’s Clean Air Forum at the splendid Hôtel de Ville. The two-day event was attended by more than 300 hundred people and viewed online by another 450. High interest in the conference was thanks to an impressive lineup of speakers, which included Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, Bulgarian Minister for Environment Nino Dimov, President of the Regional Council of Île-de-France Valerie Pecresse, EU Commissioners Karmenu Vella and Pierre Moscovici, and former EU Commissioner Dacian Cioloș.

The second conference, which took place at the Arche de la Défense, focused on how to increase financing for energy efficiency projects around Europe. The event was organized for DG Energy and EASME in cooperation with the French Ministry of Ecological & Solidary Transition. PRACSIS’s local EURACSIS agency RESET PR helped take care press relations for the conference which featured high-level speakers from French and other government ministries, CEOs of major banks, the UN, IEA, and MEPs.

On the same day, Pracsis also organized a public signing ceremony for an important loan contract between the European Investment Bank, NATIXIS (an arm of Groupe BPCE) and AKUO, a sustainable energy project developer. Ambroise Fayolle, vice-president of the EIB (pictured, middle) said “a total of €330 million is being mobilized by the EIB in cooperation with prime financial partners committed to climate action [. . .] to support Akuo in their renewable energy investments. This is a strong signal from EIB that we are stepping up financing to climate action.”
