EUKI Newsletter

Date: 04 April 2019

Dear EUKI Community,

In today’s newsletter, we would like to look back at three exciting months for the European Climate Initiative (EUKI). Our highlights were the 2nd EUKI Networking Conference in March as well as Chancellor Angela Merkel recognising the work of the EUKI Community in her weekly podcast.

While our projects continue to carry out great work and deliver excellent results, new projects will soon be selected. Apply until 12 April for the 3rd Call for Project Ideas to receive financing for your innovative idea for climate action.

Below you can find a selection of the activities of current EUKI projects during the past months. Read more about climate action research by journalists, about schoolchildren planting vegetables and about the Franco-German Energy Transition Week. You can also learn more about EUKI in our new brochure, in our video, and in our current press review.

Kind regards
EUKI Secretariat
