The Climate Plan is a strategy that has been co-produced with local citizens in three regards: the demand to create the plan came from the More Sustainable Barcelona network; to draft the plan, participatory sessions were organised and the Decidim digital platform was used to gather contributions, and citizens are also involved in the implementation of the plan through the climate projects.

The Climate Plan is being implemented through some twenty projects that are being launched and developed in two stages:

  • Projects from the Barcelona Climate Commitment 2015-2017, which was the starting point for the Climate Plan.
  • New line of subsidies to promote collaborative projects between the Administration and local citizens with the following objectives:
    • Boost citizen involvement.
    • Support collective citizen actions.
    • Promote and foster innovative initiatives.
    • Use co-creation processes.
    • Contribute to the achievement of Barcelona’s Climate Commitment objectives.

On the occasion of the COP21, Barcelona City Council and the 800 citizen organisations linked to the More Sustainable Barcelona network, signatories of the 2012-2022 Citizen Commitment to Sustainability, signed the Barcelona Climate Commitment. A roadmap with a series of projects to make the city's commitment to combating climate change more explicit by involving the general public.

Over two years, a total of nine projects were developed. These have been their results.
