Grassroots movements and community action play a vital role in shaping the environment we live in, including in fighting climate change. Communities present a fascinating case of uniting individuals to work together towards a common goal – from building stronger societal connections to solving local and global challenges. The impacts of community action are especially visible when the processes and results are shared, and the activities are scaled throughout the region.
To mobilize community action on climate change, a new project was initiated by Nordic Council of Ministers office in Lithuania in partnership with a community center and a social enterprise Miesto Laboratorija (eng.”City Laboratory”) in Vilnius, Lithuania. Together with project partners Dodo from Finland, “Foodsharing i Borås” from Sweden and Nordregio they aim to encourage, empower, and equip communities in Lithuania and Nordic countries to fight climate change.
The project aims to encourage, empower, and equip communities in Lithuanian and Nordic urban areas to fight climate change.
Project activities, the positive examples shared, and the collaborations built throughout the project will spark action and help communities become the solution to climate change, rather than the cause of it.
