RethinkAction supports the objectives of the EU Green Deal. This and related frameworks and regulations are in line with the Paris Agreement, which points to the critical role of the land use planning in reaching the long-term climate mitigation objectives. Land resources are also fundamental, even critical, to reach climate objectives and specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In this context, the RethinkAction project puts citizens and decision-makers at the heart of climate action by developing a cross-sectoral planning decision-making platform to foster climate action across Europe. RethinkAction therefore focuses on people and their ability to create change, rather than solely on technology and data.
By creating a cross-sectoral platform for planning decisions related to sustainable land use, the RethinkAction project will promote climate action and improve decision-makers’ and citizens’ understanding of sustainable mitigation and adaptation solutions.
As the project progresses, the results will be regularly updated in detail.
