Communities for Climate calls for applications

By Other

The European Commission announces the launch of the Communities for Climate pilot action.

The call for applications is open from 21 February to 3 April 2024, 23:59 CET. To learn more about the initiative, there is an informational webinar on Thursday, 29 February at 11:00 CET. Participants can register HERE.

Communities for Climate (C4C) aim to harness the power of citizens-based local initiatives in response to the urgency of climate change by supporting 50 local climate-related community projects.

Benefits to these communities include:

  • specialised expertise,
  • peer-learning,
  • customised study visits,
  • mentoring and coaching,
  • and guidance on ways to make local community projects impactful and visible at European, national and local levels.

These community-based local initiatives should be implementing actions in one (or more) of the four following areas:

  • regenerating biodiversity,
  • water management,
  • local circular economies or
  • renewable energy in urban or rural settings.

Besides, these initiatives will be located in one of the eleven eligible EU countries: Croatia, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, and Sweden. Project ideas that foster a cross-border collaboration in tackling climate issues are encouraged.
