Translated title: Local and regional action in climate change mitigation - Mobilisation and strengthening of districts as multipliers
In addition to cities, regions play a key role in climate change mitigation. In many European countries, there are good examples of how smaller regions in particular can trigger significant leverage. Counties, for example, can accompany, advise and mobilise their local communities and establish a common framework for climate action. In Germany, the project "Districts in the lead!" focuses on the importance of these actors and thus also on rural climate change mitigation.
In this article by "Europa kommunal", the project team describes the special potential of regional actors for climate change mitigiation and gives recommendations for a targeted reorientation of municipalities.
