Climate change continues to be challenged, but that has not stopped nearly all the world’s leaders from taking measures to transition their energy scenarios. Here in France, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) is a public agency under the joint authority of the Ministry for an Ecological and Solidary Transition and the Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation. Together with the ministry and Agency for Biodiversity, they’re launching a call for projects and we’re happy to share this initiative:
(translated from French):
An unprecedented call for projects
In order to directly involve French citizens in climate action, Nicolas Hulot announced during the launch of the Climate Plan, on July 6, 2017, a draft of participatory budgets. Through ‘My Project for the Planet’, citizens are invited to propose projects in the fields of energy, circular economy and biodiversity.
This call for citizens’ initiatives aims to support and help develop concrete and innovative concrete actions, federating a variety of actors, including civil society, to fight against climate change and to improve the daily living environment. The hope is to see potential spin-offs of certain projects throughout the national territory.
The amount spent on “My project for the planet” is three million euros.
“My Project for the Planet” aims to:
- promote the projects of citizens who are effectively involved in the implementation of actions related to the ambitions of the Climate Plan;
- involve citizens in the choices and actions implemented to support innovations in the energy, circular economy or biodiversity sectors.Learn more at : https://www.monprojetpourlaplanete.gouv.fr/
