About the Project

The aim of the C4CA was to take the completed RECENT & Greensettle projects and combine these with the ongoing FAMARB project’s approach to energy efficiency. The overall aim was to increase knowledge about these issues among the Northern communities, who want to mitigate emissions caused by energy usage. Key stakeholders include various energy sector operatives and schools, which are instrumental in championing climate change mitigation. One key goal of RECENT and Greensettle was to study how energy efficiency and other solutions could be utilised better in Northern communities. This resulted in case studies, best practice, investments and other practical measures. The aim was to help communities to manage, utilise their resources better and to take right steps to improve energy efficiency. FAMARB works with similar challenges and utilises the outcomes of these previous projects in a more specific way through C4CA, as will other communities across the region of the Arctic EU programmes.

The Moodle platform, which was set up during RECENT project, has been utilised in C4CA and taken to next level in dissemination of these solutions. With these recommendations and proposals Northern communities can improve their climate actions. The other aspect of the project, the empowerment of school children about climate change actions to be taken, is achieved through the Eco City game, which was developed in Greensettle. The game, which was first made in Finnish and Russian, has been translated into English and Norwegian in C4CA and other language versions can be done as well. C4CA has promoted the game through various events that have been organised in the participating regions, especially in schools. Through the game pupils are able to learn about energy efficiency, environment, climate change and get ideas how to address these issues.
