C4C Project Unveiled, Igniting a Call for Applications!

Feb 22, 2024 | Events, News

The Communities for Climate (C4C) project, funded by the European Commission, began on 8 January 2024. This 18-month project is led by AEIDL, in collaboration with ECOLISE, REScoop.EU and DRIFT. 

A call is being launched to select 50 Communities for Climate in the following areas: regenerating biodiversity, water management, local circular economies or renewable energy in urban or rural settings.

People actively involved in a dynamic citizens’ community, working on enhancing circular economy within their area, or European Climate Pact Ambassadors are good examples of the kind of initiatives who could directly benefit from Communities for Climate.

In addition to being committed to responding to climate change, another reason to apply to this Call is to be amongst the 50 selected community-led initiatives that benefit from a free-of-charge package, which includes: specialised expertise, peer-learning, customised study visits, mentoring and coaching, and guidance on ways to make local community projects impactful and visible at European, national and local levels.  

The place-based dimension is a key feature of the C4C initiative. The selected initiatives will be located in one of the eleven eligible EU countries: Croatia, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, and Sweden. Project ideas that foster a cross-border collaboration in tackling climate issues are encouraged.

The call will be open from 21 February 2024, with a deadline for submissions set for 3 April 2024 23:59 CET. For more information, send an email to .

For more information about the initiative, the call for applications, and the informational webinar, visit the website of the C4C initiative.
