Key Take-Aways from Multi-Level Collaboration in the Three4Climate Project

The motto of the project “Think European – Act Local” already says it: Successful climate action requires thinking and collaborating across borders and across governance levels. The Three4Climate Survey showed that most of the respondents in the Three4Climate cities and schools agreed that their cities needed to connect more with the EU level to better and jointly work on climate action. This is why one of the Three4Climate project’s aims was to foster multi-level collaboration for climate action. Now that the project has formally ended (see EUKI community post on the project’s final event), conclusions can be drawn on multi-level collaboration and its main achievements in the Three4Climate project.
