The European Climate Initiative supports projects from civil society, science, business, education and local authorities

The Federal Environment Ministry is today giving the go-ahead for the fifth ideas competition of the European Climate Protection Initiative (EUKI). Until January 19, 2021, non-profit organizations in the European Union are invited to submit their project ideas on cross-border climate protection. The EUKI networks local actors in order to implement a common, ambitious climate protection policy in Europe. Federal Environment Minister Svenja Schulze: “By the end of the year, the EU member states will agree on a new, more ambitious climate target. The direction is clear: Europe needs and wants more climate protection. In order to achieve the climate target within the next ten years, we want to join forces in Europe and promote the exchange of knowledge and practical solutions. The close, transnational cooperation of meanwhile more than a hundred climate protection projects under the umbrella of our European climate protection initiative helps us to implement an effective and trust-based climate strategy in Europe. ”The EUKI projects work on pioneering ideas for European climate protection in the following eight main topics: , Energy, building sector and municipalities, mobility, agriculture, soil and forest, awareness raising, climate-friendly financing and sustainable management. The cross-border projects are also intended to simplify the climate policy dialogue in the EU. The target groups of the projects are governments, municipalities, educational institutions and groups of people from civil society, science and business, primarily in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe and the Baltic states. The growing network of the European Climate Protection Initiative (EUKI) currently spans 241 organizations in 25 EU – as well as 5 Western Balkan countries are active and work across national borders. The EUKI projects are committed, for example, to climate-friendly and livable cities, a socially acceptable structural change in coal regions or to teaching European schoolchildren how to deal responsibly with nature and the environment. Since it was founded in 2016, the EUKI has initiated 128 climate projects in Europe.
