Title: Sustainable Now
Sustainable NOW is a European project (duration: September 2008 - August 2011), which will:
· Develop capacity to strengthen the role of local and provincial governments as political and administrative bodies guiding communities in the sustainable energy transition, overcoming non-technical barriers and creating tangible results for sustainability.
· Create instruments that build on state-of-the-art Local Energy Action Plan (LEAP) developments to support local governments in decision-making for integrated energy management, climate protection actions and securing local energy supply.
· Guide LEAP implementation in selected learning communities.
· Make the results widely available through the European Sustainable Cities and Towns Campaign.
