The climate emergency and energy transition agendas require clear leadership, ambition and conviction if Europe is to meet 2050 climate neutrality targets. Climate change leadership has undergone numerous changes over the last number of years. While initially viewed as a high-level focus by only those at the uppermost levels in government, it has now become viewed as an important issue at all levels from local community leaders to Presidents. While some communities are trying to focus on mitigation and adaptation strategies, they are frequently lacking the strong leadership that will help them achieve a robust response.
REMARKABLE Climate Leaders will build new leadership capacity through a Climate Leadership Programme designed with and for leaders who, through their actions and inspiration, will drive their municipalities, public authorities, communities and regions.
The Climate Leadership Programme will use ethnography and people-centred approaches to address the key characteristics, drivers and behaviours of leaders as well as the challenges which hinder the implementation of current and emerging approaches for reaching the climate goals.
By translating strategic aspirations and policy ambitions into concrete and disruptive far-reaching measures, the REMARKABLE will facilitate the creation of 60 roadmaps for public authorities.
Overall, aiming to accompany the territories of the 7 European regions involved in the project and replicate its activities beyond the project, REMARKABLE Climate Leaders will achieve:
REMARKABLE Climate Leaders will build new leadership capacity across Europe through a Climate Leadership Programme designed with and for climate leaders. Through a people-centred approach, Regional Energy Agencies will support leaders of public authorities and communities in implementing transformational roadmaps and innovative solutions to achieve climate neutrality.
