Welcome to our first newsletter of 2018! Some highlights to look forward to over the next 12 months include: the annual General Assembly in Luxembourg in March, a great opportunity to shape ECOLISE strategy and to network with others in the community-led movement. Please register now to join us in person or online.

In the summer we’ll be publishing an in-depth and scientifically rigorous Status Report of community-led initiatives in Europe, as part of our commitment to create a knowledge commons for community-led action on sustainability and climate change.

On 22 September we’ve the 2nd European Day of Sustainable Communities when collectively we can showcase our work. And once again we plan to cohost an event with the EESC in Brussels – this year focussing on municipalities and communities.

In December we’ll be at COP24 in Poland, bringing our message of the vital role of community-led action for climate change, in cooperation with the Climate Action Network.

There are numerous other plans bubbling away within the network, so stay in touch via Facebook or Twitter and our monthly newsletter.
