New event series spotlights local actions for a SHARED GREEN DEAL

Communities across Europe are key to making the European Green Deal work, but a central question is: how? That question, and the pursuit of the answers, guide the new online event series Local actions for a SHARED GREEN DEAL.

Through a blend of the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) perspectives, the series aims to address how local involvement can significantly contribute to the Green Deal's success, focussed specifically around the streams of biodiversity, mobility, energy, food, renovations and circularity, addressing the often overlooked level between individuals and governments. Organised by the SHARED GREEN DEAL, of which ICLEI is a partner organisation, the project's core goal is to stimulate shared actions on Green Deal initiatives across Europe by providing SSH tools to support the implementation of eight EU Green Deal policy areas at the local and regional level. 

Scheduled from 14 March-28 May 2024, the series offers insights from Social Sciences and Humanities on aligning European ambitions with community actions. It presents lessons learned from 24 local community experiments, supported by leading universities and a broad range of European networks, illustrating the collective effort required to forge a sustainable future.

The series will encompass six online sessions of 90 minutes, each dedicated to a unique topic:

Each session aims to foster knowledge transfer, harness collective experience, and support action on the ground and in EU policies. Join the series, or any individual session, and learn about the local implementation of the European Green Deal initiatives.
