ACCTING is funding 10 innovative projects on specific topics that have high potential to reduce or prevent inequalities and negative impacts related to the Green Deal on poorer, marginalised and vulnerable groups. Up to €32,000 per pilot will be awarded – subject to costs motivation from applying parties – for projects which should last up to 12 months. The call for organisations to implement these projects is open until 8. September 2023.
The pilot action “Next time better and more inclusive” – Engaging local communities to ensure improved disaster responses aims to facilitate participants in co-creating a scenario for managing a disaster using a bottom-up approach that involves all stakeholders, including citizens. The goal is to inform and induce behavioral change among actors from local communities as well as authorities. This pilot project will be implemented in a region that has recently experienced a sudden disaster. The objective is to reduce the risk of similar disasters in the future and improve disaster preparedness.
