DescriptionThe Municipality of Worms is a project partner of the Interreg North-West Europe project Climate Active Neighbourhoods (CAN).
The CAN project encourages bottom-up initiatives that change energy consumption paradigms on a neighbourhood level, with a special focus on social housing and deprived areas. CAN helps develop and launch new organisational models for the sharing of responsibilities between local authorities and neighbourhoods to foster action from the bottom up. This novel approach aims at strengthening commitment for energy savings in neighbourhoods while ensuring coherence between bottom-up activities and city-wide strategies.
While the newly agreed upon organisational frameworks are being applied, financing schemes and activation tools serve tosupport the development of bottom-up energy retrofitting initiatives. CAN is also realising pilot investments for energy efficiency in selected neighbourhoods.
