EUKI Newsletter

Date: 07 October 2019

Dear EUKI Community,


I cordially invite you to take a look at our EUKI Newsletter with a selection of EUKI activities in the past three months. Learn more about the great work of our projects and read about a green business initiative in Cyprus, solar energy in Lithuania, the role of climate policies for the EU reform and the Forum of Mayors for municipal representatives from Bulgaria, Greece, Poland and Germany.


Our EUKI community is growing – with soon more than 80 projects doing exciting and inspiring work and producing valuable project results. That is why we have created the new EUKI Community platform for project implementers and partners to share even more information related to their work, such as project events, best practice examples, lessons learnt, or requests for collaboration on upcoming (EU) calls.


Enjoy scrolling through our news and find more information about the EUKI on our website.


Yours sincerely,


Stefan Bundscherer
Director European Climate Initiative (EUKI)
