About the hub

Are you wondering if your municipal governance is fit for delivering climate neutrality? Are you looking to advance systemic change in your municipality’s governance and to set up long-lasting structures that deliver your city’s climate strategy? Would you like to take budgetary decisions that account for your planned actions’ climate impact?  Then the Future-proof local governance Hub is for you!

By presenting alternatives and new narratives, we will inspire cities to rethink local social and economic models based on local resource regeneration, while ensuring societal solidarity and equity.
