Apply as a Mentor
Mentor is an individual who represents a team within an organisation who has expertise in using innovative financing schemes for implementation of sustainable energy and climate action projects. As a mentor, you will share your knowledge and be engaged in a meaningful relationship with one or more peers. You will gain mentoring and leaderships skills, and be recognised for future ‘expert’ positions, thanks to a certification process. Confronting your experience with peers working on the same issues, can also help you get additional feedback on your projects, see things from a different angle and reflect on future challenges. Moreover, you will showcase achievements of your city or region at European level. We will feature your city or region as a best practice on innovative financing and give it visibility in our PROSPECT communication materials and mentors' corner! PROSPECT will also offer its mentor cities and regions the possibility to take part for free in one of the study visits organised in the learning programmes.
Apply as a Mentee
Mentee is an individual who wants to learn from an experienced or expert peer on financing a sustainable energy project using an innovative scheme and is interested to apply what they learned in their own context. You will have the opportunity to exchange with your Mentor and get a tailor-made assistance adapted to your learning objectives and needs. It is a way to confront ideas with peers, share your experience and challenge your knowledge to come up with new solutions. You can get direct access to a network of cities, regions and energy agencies facing the same challenges as you.
