Budapest Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan


The Budapest Climate Citizens’ Assembly is a participatory democratic initiative that contributed to the development of the city’s climate strategy. The strategy aims to reduce emissions through renovation, reduction of car traffic, promotion of low-emission transport, use of renewable energy, increase of protected natural areas and low-emission zones. Citizens were actively engaged in recommending measures such as the creation of a public dialogue platform, financial funds for improving buildings, the launch of a media and awareness-raising campaign, incentives and communication on rainwater use.
