PLAC - A participative platform for climate in Almada (Portugal)

By Béatrice Alcaraz on 3 May 2016

The city of Almada in Portugal is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050. In order to collectively work towards this objective, the municipality has created its own collaborative working tool: the city has officially launched the Plataforma Local Almada Clima (PLAC).

This initiative developed by the city council constitutes a positive example to encourage the local community to take action.

The platform is a voluntary participation forum in which partners discuss, share and disseminate information and knowledge to support local action aiming at making Almada’s territory post-carbon and resilient.

With PLAC, the city of Almada wishes to bring together stakeholders having relevant knowledge in the fields of energy and climate but also public and private players and the civil society.

Energy Cities has naturally agreed to take part in PLAC as an advisor, feeding the experiences of its over 1,000 members into the platform. The initiative is an illustration of one of our Proposals for the energy transition: "Creating interface capacities between public authorities the civil society".

We bet that PLAC will go further than this proposal by involving all actors of the municipality of Almada!
