On 11 April 2019 the Final Conference of the “Climate Active Neighbourhoods” (CAN) project was successfully hosted by the City of Arnhem (NL) and organised by Climate Alliance, a European municipal network.
96 participants representing project partners, municipalities, non-profit organisations, regional authorities, energy agencies and cooperatives, housing associations, consultancies, policy and science joined the conference. A fruitful exchange of ideas and perspectives on neighbourhood climate action was fostered during a keynote speech, a podium discussion, a thematic marketplace, two workshops and three site-visits.
The main thematic focus of the day was set on how to empower the neighbourhood level and residents to become a stronger and more active part of local climate action. During the three year project period of CAN a versatile range of bottom-up solutions was developed - from encouraging residents to take action on energy efficiency and energy poverty to financial support tools to new ways of cooperation.
