COGREENEU: European Cooperation Against Climate Change


Aims and objectives of the project:

The COGREENEU project aims to involve local communities and European organisations in the ecological transition, respecting and caring for the climate. The idea is that the policies of these organisations are guided by a bottom-up perspective, in which it is the citizens who, through their decisions, propose ideas to prevent the consequences of climate change. COGREENEU seeks to encourage citizen participation in debates and actions related to climate and the environment by creating spaces for transnational activities, workshops and events where ideas and decisions on environmental sustainability can be put into practice.


The main objective of the COGREENEU project is to foster citizen participation in the ecological transition and sustainability in Europe, with an intergenerational approach and in particular towards youth.


  • To build new local policies based on citizen and youth participation as the main decision-makers of the project. 
  • To raise awareness and sensitise young people about the European Green Pact and their role in the EU’s ecological transition. 
  • To increase the civic responsibility of intergenerational citizens and their involvement in issues related to the sustainable development of their cities. 
  • Encourage the exchange of experiences and joint learning between different stakeholders from different European cities, in order to formulate local strategies and actions on the European Green Pact and the ecological transition. 
  • To contribute to the dissemination and publicity of European environmental policies at local level, with special emphasis on young Europeans.


The project has set two main results:

Green Deal Report: A comprehensive report that will focus on the development of the European Green Deal within the European Union and its implications for local communities. This forthcoming report will scrutinize the evolving landscape of climate change and its localized effects. It will serve as a valuable resource for policymakers, researchers, and community leaders, offering insights into the convergence of global climate objectives and regional impacts. This report aims to provide a deeper understanding of the environmental challenges faced by individual regions.


Sustainable Solutions Guidelines: A set of guidelines for implementing sustainable solutions tailored to enhance green protection measures in each participating European region. These forthcoming guidelines will be customized to address the distinct environmental contexts and challenges present in each region. By offering pragmatic steps and recommendations, they will empower communities and decision-makers to proactively embrace sustainability and green protection measures. These guidelines are poised to play a pivotal role in fostering more resilient and environmentally-conscious regions.
