INTERREG SUDOE - ClimACT
The ClimACT project aims to support the transition to a low-carbon economy in schools. The Blue Flag Association of Europe (ABAE), which will be responsible mainly for the sustainability education component, is part of the consortium made up of nine European entities: Instituto Superior Técnico , Instituto de Soldadura e Qualidade , Edigreen , ABAE , or CIEMAT , University of Seville , Université de la Rochelle , Ville de la Rochelle and University of Gibraltar .
It will be implemented in 35 pilot schools in Portugal, Spain, France and Gibraltar, based on four lines of action: (i) development of decision support tools that will enable schools to increase their energy efficiency through the intelligent management of resources, change and behavior change; (ii) development of business models and new energy management strategies for schools; (iii) development of educational tools for low carbon awareness; and (iv) creation of a thematic network in the SUDOE region to sensitize and empower schools in the transition to a low carbon economy.
The objective of the Interreg SUDOE program is to promote transnational cooperation to solve common problems in the South-West European regions, with the ClimACT project being part of the priority axis "Low Carbon Economy".
This project lasts for three years and is co-financed by the ERDF. Project website here
