Dear friends of climate action in Europe,
We are pleased to announce that the Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMU) will soon launch the sixth EUKI call for project ideas. Dr. Silke Karcher from BMU and the EUKI Secretariat will give the go-ahead live at the EUKI Networking Conference taking place on 23 and 24 November.
What’s next? You have an exciting idea for a cross-border climate action project in Europe? From 24 November until 12 January, we call upon non-profit organisations to submit their project outlines. All relevant information will be published on the EUKI website, in this newsletter and our Socials Twitter and Facebook. Also, we would like to invite all representatives of ongoing and completed projects to join this year’s EUKI Networking Conference “Fit for Climate Action - Together for a Climate-Neutral Europe”. Under the guiding question “how can we transform Europe into a climate-neutral continent?”, it offers inspiring keynote sessions and plenty of interactive workshops (see programme) in which you can explore your pathways to climate neutrality. All updates on speakers, sessions and networking opportunities can be found on the EUKI Networking Conference website.
What’s on? While we are busy with preparing for the conference and the next funding round, 25 new climate action projects from our fifth call are kicking off in these weeks. They connect European rail systems, make cities more livable and pedestrian-friendly or educate about myths and truths of green hydrogen. We are proud to see that every single EUKI funded project contributes to the European Green Deal – all together in 31 countries of the EU and the Western Balkans. With a total funding volume of 10.6 million Euros in our fifth call, we are further raising the ambitions and (financial) contributions to European climate action.
What else happened? A lot! We have selected the best of the latest news about EUKI funded projects. Enjoy reading!
