Climate change is manifested through rising sea levels, heat waves, forest fires, droughts, floods and increasing temperatures. They all affect ecosystems and biodiversity, as well as economic growth, infrastructure, and quality of life. There is an urgent need to reduce emissions as reflected in the 2015 Paris Agreement and the EU’s 2030 Climate and Energy Framework.
The Green Zulawy project aims to improve energy efficiency of school buildings, reduce CO2 emissions, increase the share of energy generated from renewable energy sources, and raise the energy efficiency awareness of the inhabitants.
To do so, the following key tasks are planned:
- Stakeholders mapping, engagement, and co-creation workshops
- Capacity building, training and knowledge sharing on solutions including nature-bases solutions for improving energy efficiency
- Awareness raising and education activities towards schoolchildren and teachers
- Thermal modernisation in three Primary Schools
- Lab and field study tours – nature-based solutions and renewable energy facilities in Norway
- Analysis of project impact on society
