Climate-neutral Kristianstad 2030 will accelerate the transition to a sustainable, resource-efficient and climate-neutral society through innovation-driven, co-creative work characterized by commitment and participation. The project strengthens institutional capacity, is based on local conditions and uses collaborative platforms to create consensus and momentum in the climate transition work. Digital tools are used to promote dialogue and as decision support. The project's innovation development focuses on the sectors with the greatest climate impact in Kristianstad - transport and agriculture.
The initiative will develop innovative tools and processes. Kristianstad will be better equipped to work with climate neutrality from a justice perspective. The project partners will jointly contribute to inspiring and showing the way in the climate transition, both at home and for other communities with similar conditions and challenges as Kristianstad has.
