Build bridges for climate Protection

  • Build bridges for climate Protection


    Build bridges for climate Protection is a project coordinated by Landratsamt Fürstenfeldbruck and E35 Foundation, funded by the German Federal Government through the European Climate Initiative program to provide tools to operators, useful for the development of environmental education paths aimed at migrants and asylum seekers present on the our territory, in order to contribute to greater integration of the same and to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. The project started in November 2017 and will end in March 2018.

    PAESI COINVOLTI: Italy, Germany

    PARTNER COINVOLTI: Landratsamt Fürstenfeldbruck, Asylbewerberunterbringung – Ressourcenmanagement, Associazione Alvise Cornaro, Berufsschule Fürstenfeldbruck, Energiebildner e.V., Fondazione E 35, Unione di Comuni del Trasimeno, IREN, rete Diritto di Parola, Consorzio Oscar Romero e Cooperativa Sociale Dimora d’Abramo.

    The project aims on social innovation (new citizenship, job integration) in terms of resource efficiency, circular economy and climate protection (energy, water, waste) to create – in a visionary initial vocational training and education situation – skills and pathways for refugees and recent migrants, exploitable in countries of both origin and destination. The project objective is to prepare a feasibility study on energy, water and waste generators in accommodations for refugees, identifying approaches for a reduction of these resources in order to reduce CO2 generation. Based on the study results, a pilot training lab focused on intercultural dialog, resource efficiency and climate protection will be implemented for refugees and newly arrived migrants in Germany. The training lab will be also transferred to and implemented in Italy. Participants of the training labs develop pro-actively and self-committed a pool of ideas and will identify suitable implementation opportunities (e.g. services, value chains, cooperations). Additionally a network of supporting organizations will be
    identified in order to support active citizenship in Germany and Italy, aiming to support the community resilience towards the climate change impacts and building bridges with NGOs operating in the countries of origin from the Global South.
