Civic engagement and participatory governance in climate action


Participatory climate action planning has been structured by the city to sustain citizen participation and engagement and to address diverse challenges such as climate change and poverty. The city focuses on communication, institutional support for carrying out the Climate and Energy Action Plan activities, and on organising public consultations to develop actions. Emphasis is placed on grassroots initiatives, the inclusion of the city's key stakeholders such as artists, citizens and other local actors.
