Sustainable-communities.eu has been developed to help communities across Europe interact with each other, get inspired by real life stories of action elsewhere and keep up to date with what’s going on.
European policy makers recognise that grass roots initiatives of all sizes often drive the innovation required to create a low carbon transition. Through an associated research project, TESS, the site has been created by a team of communicators and researchers from Universities, Institutes and Partners. We are researching the success factors behind sustainable community initiatives at varying scales and in different environments, and the obstacles that must be overcome.
We hope that Sustainable-communities.eu will help contribute in a small way to this crucial, but often unrecognized element of the sustainability agenda, and give communities the opportunity to inform research and policy making.
