A co-creation process to build a path towards climate neutrality!

by | Mar 3, 2023 | News | 0 comments

The EUCityCalc project will support 10 pilot cities (Riga, Dijon Métropole, Mantova, Zdar, Palmela, Sesimbra, Setúbal, Koprivnica, Varazdin and Virovitica) in developing and implementing scientifically robust, detailed and integrated pathways and scenarios towards climate neutrality. With the EUCityCalc webtool at its core, the design of transition pathways and policy scenarios for these pilot cities will be based in a co-creation process with key local stakeholders working jointly in expert working groups.

The key function of the expert working groups will consist in leveraging feedback to co-build their transition path for the city towards climate neutrality by using the EUCityCalc webtool. This format will not only foster collaboration and learning between the pilot city and its stakeholders (external dimension: actors from industry, energy suppliers, data observatories, NGOs, academia), but also between the city departments (internal dimension: public officials with planning competence and from other relevant departments such as transport or housing).

The objective is to build and refine transition pathways and scenarios to adopt in the city (in line with 2050 EU targets) through several sessions to be held between March and November 2023, focused on different sectors (transport, building, energy and consumption). The developed scenarios and pathways will be politically binding for the pilot cities, as they will feed into the development and update of their SEAPs/SECAPs and related strategic plans.
