Covid19 resulted in the postponement of many planned activities.
The BEACON project cooperates with municipalities and schools. How can you stay in touch in times of Covid19?
At CRES, our BEACON activities involve only municipalities in Greece. We have stayed in touch with all five of them via e-mail and phone, and we have asked them about their availability for online meetings, coachings, trainings, and advisory services. All have expressed their willingness to participate, but things are developing rapidly at the moment and availability is low as people are working in shifts and have other urgent matters to attend to. We expect to have a clearer view of the situation by the end of April.

Which consequences expect for climate action in Greece in general?
It is really hard to say. It depends on the developments, particularly after the end of summer, and also on the overall economic conditions. Based on the experiences from the economic crisis in Greece, it could be said that climate action efforts may slow down due to other priorities. However, things may get back in track, particularly through funding and financing programmes for sustainable energy projects. We are optimistic!
