Reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions is one of the main issues at the political agenda of Europe and Latvia. Various studies have shown that municipalities have the largest potential for achieving both aims.
The project 'Training on climate and energy management issues for municipalities and different industries' aims at finding solutions for introducing sustainable environment and energy management ideas in daily life practice, as well as increasing public awareness and participation in climate change mitigation.
The project will develop training materials and organize training events. Project materials and the results will be presented in a book.
The project consortium consists of the following partners: Ekodoma Ltd. (coordinator), Latvia; Salspils municipality, Latvia; Saldus municipality, Latvia; Jurmala city administration, Latvia, and; Østfold University College, Norway.
The project is being implemented with a financial support from the European Economic Area Financial Mechanism programme ‘National Climate Policy’ small grant scheme. All activities will be finalized by 30th April 2016.
