Following the success of Barcelona’s 2015-2017 Climate Commitment projects, Barcelona City Council has launched a new series of grants to promote collaborative projects between the public authority and the city’s citizens in order to:

  • Boost citizen involvement
  • Support collective citizen action
  • Promote and support innovative initiatives
  • Utilize co-creation processes
  • Contribute to the achievement of Barcelona’s Climate Commitment objectives.

The Climate Plan provides for €1.2 million until 2030, with a call for projects every two years to contribute to fulfilling the plan’s commitments. Over 140 organisations, and a total of 49 projects on diverse themes participated in the first call for climate grants, published in April 2018 and endowed with a budget of €200,000.

The 11 projects selected are driven by a minimum of three bodies who are working together and have received a maximum of €20,000 per project.

The process of developing these projects involves ongoing advice, monitoring and training for the participating citizens. Four joint sessions and an individual monitoring session with a technical and administrative reference person are planned for each project.
