A database of initiatives working on Green Deal topics in Europe

How are initiatives throughout Europe already working on areas related to the Green Deal? In the SHARED GREEN DEAL database, you will find an overview of European initiatives working on Green Deal topics. By clicking on an initiative in the database, you can learn more about their actions, the type of actors working on it and the diversity of Green Deal topic areas they are active in.

The database was developed in an iterative and co-creative way in 2022. It entailed different phases of conceptualising, mapping, and refining with and by consortium partners. The SHARED GREEN DEAL consortium identified initiatives to include in the database, using desk-research through public web documentation of the initiatives. This means that – although we have prioritised geographical diversity – some countries have more initiatives represented than others.

We have specified the initiatives’ actions along three types of activities: doing, thinking, or organising (based on the work of Avelino et al., 2019; Barnes et al., 2018 and Wittmayer et al., 2022):

  • We understand ‘doing’ as actions resulting in physical changes of the system in the initiative is operating in (i.e. generate electricity, growing crops).
  • ‘Thinking’ is conceptualised as actions around generating and spreading knowledge. It concerns actions regarding normative framings, values and perceptions (i.e. educating visitors of a rooftop farm on the importance of biodiversity, or doing research with a local community on plastic pollution).
  • ‘Organising’ is understood as actions related to governance and organisational structures within initiatives and the systems in which they work (i.e. organising a meeting place to facilitate other social experiments to come together to exchange ideas, or facilitating an online platform to exchange and reuse materials)

We hope this database will be useful for initiatives looking for inspirations on how their actions can contribute to the Green Deal and policy makers interested in how initiatives throughout Europe are pushing the Green Deal forward.

Do you have any comments, feedback or reflections about the database? Feel free to send an e-mail to info@sharedgreendeal.eu using the title ‘SHARED GREEN DEAL Database’ in your email, and we’ll be in contact with you shortly.

Amsterdam City Doughnut

Based on the model of Raworth (Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist,; published in 2017). The inner ring of the doughnut sets out the minimum we need to lead a good life, derived from the UN’s sustainable development goals and agreed by world leaders of every political stripe. It ranges from food and clean water to a certain level of housing, sanitation, energy, education, healthcare, gender equality, income and political voice. Anyone not attaining such minimum standards is living in the doughnut’s hole. The outer ring of the doughnut, where the sprinkles go, represents the ecological ceiling drawn up by earth-system scientists. It highlights the boundaries across which human kind should not go to avoid damaging the climate, soils, oceans, the ozone layer, freshwater and abundant biodiversity. Between the two rings is the good stuff: the dough, where everyone’s needs and that of the planet are being met. The central premise is simple: the goal of economic activity should be about meeting the core needs of all but within the means of the planet. The “doughnut” is a device to show what this means in practice. Raworth scaled down the model to provide Amsterdam with a “city portrait” showing where basic needs are not being met and “planetary boundaries” overshot. It displays how the issues are interlinked. In 2020 Amsterdam was the first city to apply the doughnut at local level.

Associação Terra Sintrópica

Associação Terra Sintrópica is located in Mértola, a town in southeastern Alentejo with a semi-arid climate and high vulnerability to desertification and climate change. It is a region with a dry climate, with high summer temperatures and one of the regions most affected by drought in all of Europe, an aspect severely aggravated by all climate scenarios. With these conditions, it is not surprising that Mértola is among the regions of Europe most susceptible to desertification. The vulnerability described above, induces severe limitations not only to agricultural activity, but also to other economic activities, such as tourism, which is affected by climatic comfort, which leads to high economic weakness that accelerates migration and depopulation. This vicious circle of resource degradation and depopulation is difficult to break. And it is with this conjecture that the Associação Terra Sintrópica was born in November 2018. Despite these climatic limitations or perhaps because of its existence, Mértola is also a territory of resilience, creativity and high social capital. Values ​​intrinsic to this association that tries to transform these weaknesses into strengths and make this territory a territory-experience for new solutions. Projects include a Nursery and Garden of Forgotten Varieties - horticultural varieties, herbaceous perennials, fruit trees and medicinal herbs used in the territory of Al-Andalus, including native species or species that have been introduced and disseminated since the Islamic period - and Forest Gardens - promotion of vegetable gardens in schools, according to the principles of syntropic agriculture, with the aim of promoting regenerative productive practices and a greater connection between future consumers and agroecological production.

B-Water Smart

The water sector in coastal areas is facing a couple of challenges such as water scarcity and increasing water demands due to climate change and economic and population growth. This can lead to overexploitation of resources, quality deterioration and regional imbalances in the availability of water resources. To tackle these challenges, the European research project building a water-smart society and economy, short B-WaterSmart, develops and demonstrates smart technologies and circular economy approaches. In order to implement those solutions more strongly in the practice of the water sector, technical and digital solutions as well as new business models are jointly developed by the project partners. The aim is to accelerate the transformation to water-smart economies and societies in coastal Europe and beyond by reducing the use of freshwater resources, improving the recovery and reuse of resources, and increase water use efficiency.

Barcelona Superblocks

This simple idea is based on blocks, initially named “supermanzanas” (super apples), that are smaller in size than a district (but bigger than an apple!). These new 400mx400m urban blocks have given the city back to the citizens by keeping car traffic on the outskirts of each block. This urban development creates a peaceful, more spacious inner area, ideal for cycling and walking as well as testing new uses that encourage social cohesion and economic development. Superblocks are new urban organisational units, with a size of around 400 x 400 m, comprised of several smaller blocks [1]. They are fringed by peripheral roads open for motorized traffic, while interior roads are closed to through traffic but open (by using a system of cards and bollards) to residents, public transport, disabled people, emergency vehicles and, in some streets, bicycles. In this way, the interior public or common areas are relieved of redundant traffic, thus leading to traffic calming of interior roads. Consequently, the areas can be recovered for other uses and thus returned back to inhabitants of the area. The process of stakeholder participation is there by intended to ensure that all the solutions are implemented according to the needs of inhabitants.

Besser zur Schule

[translated] The programme supports schools, school authorities and municipalities in the implementation and long-term realisation of school mobility management measures. The aim is to anchor them in the long term both in everyday school life and in everyday administrative actions in the municipalities. In concrete terms, this involves the development of so-called school mobility plans. These include a holistic mobility concept for the school locations and the municipalities. They bundle all activities, responsibilities and processes related to transport and mobility for a school location and beyond.

Bristol Pound

"The Bristol Pound is a form of local, complementary, and/or community currency launched in Bristol, UK on 19 September 2012. Its objective is to encourage people to spend their money with local, independent businesses in Bristol, and for those businesses to in turn localise their own supply chains. At the point of the close of the digital scheme in August 2020, it was the largest alternative in the UK to official sterling currency, and is backed by sterling. The digital currency ceased operating in August 2020 and Bristol Pound accounts have reverted to sterling accounts at the Bristol Credit Union. The Bristol Pound CIC is now in the process of developing Bristol Pay, which seeks to both offer an e-money peer to peer payment platform that can generate income for charitable projects in the city, and to create a range of token systems to encourage a culture change in how people think about economic value in relation to social capital and environmental capital."

Bündnis Bürgerenergie e.V. (BBEn)

"Das Bündnis Bürgerenergie (BBEn) setzt sich für eine von Bürger*innen getragene Energieversorgung aus 100 Prozent Erneuerbaren Energien ein. Damit einher geht die Vision, dass die 100% erneuerbare Energieversorgung bis 2030 erfolgreich umgesetzt wird. Die dezentrale Energiewende ist ein realisierbarer und finanzierbarer Lösungsansatz für eine klimaverträgliche Energieversorgung, der von einer breiten Bevölkerung umgesetzt werden kann. Dezentral heißt, die Orte der Erzeugung breit zu verteilen und in der Folge die produzierte Energie verbrauchsnah zu nutzen. Hierfür werden die lokalen technisch-wirtschaftlichen Potenziale der Photovoltaik und Windenergie maximal ausgeschöpft und Gestaltungsräume lokal von Bürger*innen und Kommunen genutzt. Verbrauchsnähe spielt eine wichtige Rolle. Der Zusammenschluss von Bürger*innen in Bürgerenergiegemeinschaften auf kommunaler oder regionaler Ebene ermöglicht die Bündelung von Kompetenzen und schafft durch entsprechende ideelle wie finanzielle Mitgestaltungsmöglichkeiten eine hohe Akzeptanz bei den Bürger*innen. Durch die aktive Teilhabe von Bürger*innen an der Energiewende kann auch die Errichtung und Projektierung von Erneuerbare Energien-Anlagen schneller angereizt werden." (Automatic Translation: The Bündnis Bürgerenergie (BBEn) is committed to an energy supply from 100 percent renewable energies supported by citizens. This is accompanied by the vision that the 100% renewable energy supply will be successfully implemented by 2030. The decentralized energy transition is a feasible and financially viable solution for a climate-friendly energy supply that can be implemented by a broad population. Decentralized means distributing the places of generation widely and subsequently using the energy produced close to consumption. For this purpose, the local technical and economic potentials of photovoltaics and wind energy are exploited to the maximum, and the scope for action is used locally by citizens and communities. Proximity to consumption plays an important role. The association of citizens in citizen energy communities on a municipal or regional level enables the bundling of competencies and creates a high level of acceptance among citizens through corresponding idealistic and financial participation opportunities. The active participation of citizens in the energy transition can also stimulate the construction and project planning of renewable energy plants more quickly."

Bürgerbus Baden-Württemberg

The goal is to provide shared mobility in rural regions where there is little or no large-scale public transport available. The initiatives are run locally by volunteers and some parts of them are focused on persons with special mobility needs, while others are aimed at all citizens. ("Der Bürgerbus (Kleinbus auf einer festen Linie) und das Bürgerrufauto (Pkw oder Kleinbus auf Vorbestellung) sind als Verkehrsangebot für die Allgemeinheit gedacht, auch wenn es jeweils bestimmte Hauptnutzergruppen gibt. Der soziale Bürgerfahrdienst (Sammeltouren mit Kleinbus oder größerem Pkw) und der Pkw-Bürgerfahrdienst (Fahrgelegenheiten in privaten Pkw der Ehrenamtlichen) beschränken sich dagegen von vornherein auf bestimmte Fahrgastgruppen und/oder Fahrtzwecke. Allen gemeinsam ist der bürgerschaftlich getragene Betrieb. Interessierte finden in Baden-Württemberg bereits viele beispielhafte Projekte.")

Gemeinsam treiben wir die Energiewende in Bürgerhand noch wirksamer voran. Die Bürgerwerke bündeln die Stromerzeugung aus Bürgerenergieanlagen, damit wir Bürger uns unabhängig von Energiekonzernen mit Bürgerstrom versorgen können. So schließen wir regionale Kreisläufe und die Wertschöpfung verbleibt vor Ort." (Translation: Our mission: Implementing the energy transition locally together Under the umbrella of Bürgerwerke, energy citizens join together as a strong community to implement projects that are not possible for individuals locally. Together, we are driving forward the energy transition in citizen hands even more effectively. Bürgerwerke bundles power generation from citizen energy plants so that we citizens can supply ourselves with citizen power independently of energy companies. In this way, we close regional loops and the added value remains locally.)

Bus mit Füßen

To help first-grade children walk to school safely in the form of a "walking bus" that is supervised by parents at the beginning until the children are comfortable enough with road safety and traffic rules to walk to school in a group, but without adult supervision. Encourages physical activity outside and road safety, reduces individual motorized mobility. ("Der Weg in die Schule ist vor allem für Erstklässler ein wichtiges Thema. Mit dem „Bus mit Füßen“ laufen die Kinder gemeinsam in abwechselnder Begleitung eines Elternteils zur Schule. Ein Bus besteht aus einer Gruppe von fünf bis acht Schülerinnen und Schülern, die auf einer festgelegten Route unterwegs sind. Dabei sammelt ein Elternteil die einzelnen „Fahrgäste“ an ihren „Haltestellen“ ein und bringt sie sicher in die Schule. Sobald die Kinder selbstbewusst und sicher genug sind, um ihren Schulweg zurücklegen, können sie den Bus auch ohne elterliche Begleitung fortführen.")

Citizens crowd investing in renewable energies

the municipality of Križevci started the first pilot project in Croatia for citizens crowd investing in renewable energies, aiming at the installation of a solar panel (PV) power plant on the rooftop of the municipality’s Development Center and Technology Park’s administrative building. This initiative was led by the Green Energy Cooperative ZEZ with its partners: the municipality of Križevci, Regional Energy Agency North, Greenpeace Croatia, Solvis and ACT Group. Green Energy Cooperative provides solar equipment for lease to the Križevci Business Centre, the owner of the building, for 10 years. All investors signed a loan agreement with the Cooperative for 6 years, for which an annual interest on accrued funds is foreseen.

Closed plastic circle in Helsinki region and Espoo

The main goal of the Closed Plastic Circle project is to get 60–70 percent of the plastics in the Helsinki metropolitan area to circulate instead of the current 6 percent figure. The manufacturing and burning of plastics creates carbon dioxide emissions. If plastics were recycled into material, the emissions caused by burning them would be avoided. Ending the burning of plastic would reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the Helsinki metropolitan area by 336,000 tonnes. This is an equivalent amount to the yearly emissions of about 80,000 people in the capital. We are developing a tracking tool that will be used to measure the completion of the goal.

Community Power

Our mission is to support Ireland to run on clean, renewable power, but as if that’s not enough we also think people should also have a real stake in it, and own it for themselves. We recognise that Ireland’s energy system is in crisis, with over 90% reliance on climate polluting fossil fuels, but many people are struggling to pay high energy bills in cold homes. That’s why we are working to make sure the many benefits of generating renewable power is shared by the people and communities of Ireland.

Community solar power plant

The first solar power plant GEN-I Sonce in a multi-apartment building with 23 apartments has 36.7 kW of power and will produce 37,000 kilowatt hours of green electricity annually. At the annual level, it will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 17 tons, and will enable annual savings in electricity consumption of more than 4,500 euros. The power plant is designed in a way that allows the vast majority of the produced electricity to be consumed by the residents themselves, and only a small part is returned to the grid. The owners of the € 36,400 investment, which will be repaid in full in seven years, will cover most of the energy needs in the building with their own production.

Und das gelingt: Überall in Deutschland finden sich immer mehr Menschen, die nicht nur Energie von uns beziehen, sondern selbst Zeichen setzen und Veränderungen anstoßen." (Automatic Translation: We were born out of a citizens' initiative and are therefore probably not only the most unusual energy supplier in the country, but also the one with the most committed and far-reaching goals. We are about much more than just switching to clean energy. We want to encourage people to take things into their own hands, to change and shape things. And we are succeeding: All over Germany, more and more people are not only buying energy from us, but also making their own mark and initiating change.)

Energieavantgarde Anhalt e. V.

"Der Energieavantgarde Anhalt e. V. ist ein Akteursnetzwerk in der Region Anhalt-Bitterfeld-Wittenberg, das in Kooperation mit nationalen und europäischen Partnern an dem zukunftsfähigen Umbau des Energiesystems vor Ort arbeitet. Der Zusammenschluss engagierter Bürger, Kommunen und Landkreise, Unternehmen und Einrichtungen sowie regional und überregional tätiger Institutionen will, dass die Energie umweltfreundlich in der Region produziert und verbraucht wird. Lange Stromtrassen sind unnötig, wenn Strom, Wärme und Mobilität dabei zusammenwachsen. Umwelt und Kima werden so geschont, unnötige Kosten für den Verbraucher vermieden." (Translation: Energieavantgarde Anhalt e. V. is a network of actors in the Anhalt-Bitterfeld-Wittenberg region that works in cooperation with national and European partners on the sustainable transformation of the local energy system. The association of committed citizens, municipalities and districts, companies and institutions as well as regional and supra-regional institutions wants energy to be produced and consumed in the region in an environmentally friendly way. Long power lines are unnecessary if electricity, heat and mobility grow together in the process. This protects the environment and the climate, and avoids unnecessary costs for the consumer.)

Estratégia Alimentar de Montemor-o-Novo (Food Strategy of Montemor-o-Novo)

The Food Strategy for Montemor-o-Novo was signed in a commitment letter in 2019. The initiative of developing a food strategy for this city followed the participative processes of Local Agenda 21 and the Strategic Charter Montemor-o-Novo, 2025, with the purpose of "(re)connecting the food system with the territory, including inhabitants and consumers, farms and local agro-food industries". The food strategy and its charter aims at working towards the affirmation and consolidation of local food systems based on the positive integration between production, processing, marketing, and consumption that respects the sustainable management of resources and the food security needs of people and the territory. The promotion and consolidation of the Mediterranean Diet are acknowledged in this initiative. The objectives are: 1) to stimulate the adoption of good practices in local productions and healthy eating habits, in the policies and public initiatives in the areas of agriculture, education, health, environment, and management of the territory's resources; 2) to value scientific and empirical knowledge as well as initiatives in the management of natural resources and agri-food production and management, bringing the scientific and and technical community, producers' associations, and public entities (local, regional and national), in an innovation and development agenda for the achievement of the objectives associated with the gradual consolidation of a sustainable and inclusive food system; 3) To contribute to a regional and national movement committed to finding responses to ensure the right to food, based on the rational management of resources and the valorisation of family farming and local production chains and circuits, in order to share value more fairly; 4) to share local experiences at European and global levels in order to build knowledge in the sustainable valorisation of natural resources as a basis for economic development and wealth creation in low-density territories.

EVA-Lanxmeer - Culemborg

"Lanxmeer is an ecological neighbourhood (240 houses) built from 1994 to 2009 in the town of Culemborg in the Netherlands. It is an environmentally friendly housing development. The project was a strong partnership between future inhabitants and the city of Culemborg, consultants and other people. It incorporates many of the principles of high environmental quality and eco-towns, but its principal originality is the promotion of the constant participation of the inhabitants. Indeed, this neighbourhood (except for its masterplan) was designed and conducted with representatives of future residents in a creative process (bottom-up; from bottom to top and not imposed by management or administration), and is often regarded as a model in several areas. It has therefore become an international reference, regularly visited by architects, urbans planners, developers, futurists or groups interested in sustainability."

Forest on Route to 20.30 [Floresta nas Linhas 20.30]

This municipal initiative aims to support the cultivation of 100 hectares of forest in the territory and support 25 hectares of existing autoctonous forests. It therefore seeks "to stimulate the conversion of poorly adapted forest stands and the forestation of uncultivated land with native species. It is also intended to support the improvement of natural regeneration, contributing to increased biodiversity, resilience and mitigation of climate change, with emphasis on increasing the storage capacity of carbon in the territory." This initiative also considers it essential to involve and support local rural and peri-urban communities, as well as property owners, in this process, and to encourage the creation of sustainable local businesses that may develop with the produce of these autoctonous species.
