You will gain insights into the methodology and key requirements around the three GCoM pillars: mitigation, adaptation, and energy access.
Recently, the EU Academy launched the brand new Module 5 of the course. This new content covers topics of great interest for local authorities working towards the sustainability of their territories and complements basic notions used for developing Climate Action Plans: air quality, local energy generation and emission factors, stakeholder and citizen engagement, multi-level governance of climate action, and financing local climate action.
These transversal topics allow for creating a more sustainable environment for citizens and local assets, overall improving quality of life and contributing to successful Climate Action Plans.
The self-paced GCoM course of the EU Academy offers participants access to an integrated set of contents and materials collected into a single and unique learning experience.
This content is offered by the European Commission – the European Union’s politically independent executive arm – which is responsible for drawing up proposals for new European legislation and implementing the decisions from the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union.
