Cities Go Climate Neutral

Cities Go Climate Neutral

Cities Go Climate Neutral paves the way for a thriving, climate-resilient and sustainable future for cities.

Grant Agreement Number: 2022-1-MT01-KA220-VET-000087326

Funded by: Erasmus+      Duration: 01/11/2022 – 31/10/2024


Cities cover about 3% of the Earth’s surface area but produce more than 70% of greenhouse gas emissions (UN Habitat). It is estimated that by 2050 almost 85% of the population of Europe will live in urban areas. Due to the high concentration of people, infrastructure, housing and economic activities, cities are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. A typical example is the phenomenon of the urban heat island, in which the temperature in urban centres is higher than that in their suburbs. Zero carbon footprint and developing urban resilience are vital to avoiding human, social and economic losses while improving the sustainability of urbanization processes to protect the environment and mitigate the risk of disasters.


This project aspires to facilitate the transition to climate neutral cities by upskilling municipal employees in designing and implementing climate neutral strategies.


The Roadmap aims to enhance and deepen the knowledge of municipality employees and elected officers regarding the process of transition to climate neutrality. It raises their awareness of the Horizon Mission for Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities and their understanding of Climate City contracts.

The training course provides municipality employees and elected officer with the appropriate skills and knowledge regarding the EU policies focusing on climate neutrality in urban areas.

Success Stories offer examples of good practices of successful local actions that have already been implemented by local EU municipalities in order to transition to climate neutrality at a local level. The main goal of the successful stories is to encourage local and regional authorities’ employees and elected officers to change attitudes and inspire people and organizations to adopt sustainable behaviours.

The aim of this Online Hub is the creation of an informative E-Learning Platform for municipal employees and any other interested stakeholders wishing to acquire information on new skills and competences, training opportunities, information about the training courses and handbooks regarding Transition to Climate Neutral Cities.
