Participation in the climate transition (DEKO)

Citizen participation is crucial for municipalities' climate transition. By actively involving residents, municipalities can better navigate the complexities of climate change and build resilient, sustainable communities.

The DEKO feasibility study aims to mobilize and activate practices, target groups and beneficiaries in Malmö. It wants to lay the foundation for interaction between (i) information, knowledge and expertise exchange and (ii) acknowledgement or feedback on how the exchange is interpreted and shapes actions for climate transition.

The initiative is part of the Viable Cities call #13.
