Practice Cube

Get inspired and become (more) climate active within YOUR neighbourhood!

The Practice Cube offers a look into the experiences made over three years by the partners of the Interreg NWE funded project Climate Active Neighbourhoods.The multi-national consortium based in Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK has closely collaborated on methods and solutions for realising a low carbon future, increased energy efficiency and a socially just energy transition on the neighbourhood level.

The Practice Cube is a collection of best practices and is targeted towards municipalities, who are looking for successful climate action solutions. The best practices are divided into three categories:

  • “New Ways of Cooperation” showcases the importance of rethinking the municipalities’ role towards facilitation and bottom-up cooperation on the local level in direct contact with the residents & neighbourhood initiatives.
  • “Engaging Residents for Change” displays methods of engagement and of fostering intrinsic motivation by positive communication.
  • “Support & Financial Tools” focusses on offering residents and neighbourhood initiatives the support they need, starting from personalised advice services up to the creation of new financial tools on the neighbourhood level.
