With a tagline, ‘Reporting that seeks to empower’, EnAct addresses two social issues: high levels of energy poverty and low levels of energy literacy. A journalistic project that aims to build understanding of energy, EnAct sees its first challenge of finding ways to ‘engage’ the public in a technical and rapidly evolving story. Using documentary film, photojournalism, podcasts, infographics and blogs, we make energy easy to grasp while showing how people, energy and Planet are interconnected.
