“We don’t lack money, but we lack good projects to lend money to.”

Welcome to this cost free Celsius talk on October 20, 10.00-11:30 under the theme: Bridging the funding gap.
Many cities across Europe aim for sustainability and a reduced climate impact. Many times, these ambitions are halted due to deprioritization, knowledge gaps or, perhaps most commonly, a lack of funds. But, there are many European funding and support mechanisms that can help cities achieve their ambitions, particularly now with the launch of the Green Deal. The problem is that they’re not being used in full – there is a gap between the resources available and the organisations they are meant for. The upside is that this means there are still funds and support available. During this webinar we will try to reduce the gap between resources and cities by explaining some of the resources available and encourage you, the cities, to apply for them. We will show you where, how, and when to apply and give examples of viable projects for these types of support.
