Highlighting the central role of citizens and civil society in the definition of environmental protection and climate action
DEN is leading and coordinating the communication and dissemination of the I-CHANGE Innovation Action. The main objective of I-CHANGE is to raise awareness on climate issues through the direct collection of environmental and socio-economic data with novel and user-friendly tools (sensors, monitoring devices, simplified models and data resources). The promotion of a co-designed learning path aims to improve citizen knowledge of climate change related harmful impacts, and understand the role of nature-based solutions in mitigating impacts. A further step is to empower citizens with targeted and personalized tools (apps, best-practices) enabling behavioural and consumption shifts towards sustainable patterns. The result will be to generate citizen science activities based on a solid scientific foundation and supported by collection, gathering and processing of data using the most up-to-date techniques and models to provide simple and practical guidelines, easily applicable by individuals and by local governors and to facilitate further uptake at national level. The project establishes the framework for the strengthening of actions promoting lifestyle shifting focusing on individual choices, including cultural, generational and gender aspects. (e.g., weather and its extremes, air temperature, air pollution, existing nature-based solutions) using new individual sensors or improved devices.
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101037193.
Project duration: 1 November 2021 until 30 April 2025.
