22 Aug The EIfI attended information meeting for call of the national funding program “Kurze Wege für den Klimaschutz” – short distances for climate protection
On August 18th the climate protection agency Bremer-Energie-Konsens Ltd. invited to an information event for the call of the national program “Kurze Wege für den Klimaschutz” – short distances for the climate protection. Like many other institutions, the EIfI took the invitation and learned about the basic conditions and the thematic orientation of the program.
As part of the National Climate Initiative, the Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) initiated with this call a funding opportunity for projects to protect the climate, which encourages the local authorities, but especially organizations, associations and foundations to propose project applications. Alone or in cooperation, with that also small institutions can submit project ideas until 30th of October 2016, which create proposals for citizens at neighbourhood level to motivate people to actively deal with the climate protection and contribute avoidance of greenhouse gas emissions.
During the event of the climate protection agency Bremer-Energie-Konsens Ltd. Jessica Suplie from the Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) introduced the newly initiated program, explained which criteria are important for propose applications and answered questions.
In demand are innovative ideas like repair or exchange cafés, community gardens or sharing concepts, which address citizens in neighbourhoods or quarters and their everyday behaviour. Content can thereby focus on issues like mobility and consumption, land use, nutrition, electricity and heating energy or living, individually or in conjunction with each other.
The call for innovative project ideas is open until 30th October 2016.
