Social sciences & Humanities for Achieving a Responsible, Equitable and Desirable Green Deal

Started in February 2022, SHARED GREEN DEAL brings together 22 leading organisations from across the EU including eight universities, three research institutions, eight network organisations and three SMEs. The project partners cover core elements of the European Green Deal crosscutting priorities such as civil society, democracy, gender, energy, environment, circular economy and innovation.

SHARED GREEN DEAL will carry on 24 social experiments, taking place in different member states, around six priority Green Deal topics (Clean Energy, Circular Economy, Efficient Renovations, Sustainable Mobility, Sustainable Food and Preserving Biodiversity) and deliver a set of tools to foster changes in societal practices and in the behaviour of individuals, communities, and public and private organisations. Through a transdisciplinary approach,and thanks to the development of effective new strategies, SHARED GREEN DEAL will address behavioural change and long-term commitment, trust, social acceptance and buy-in from people, communities and organisations.

The objectives of the project directly address European challenges with an aim to share actions, understandings, evidence, insights, responsibilities and benefits across stakeholders including policymakers and civil society. Issues of inclusivity and diversity are at the heart of the project to particularly account for disadvantaged and vulnerable social groups.
