The EU-funded project “The Future We Want - Local Authorities for Sustainable Development”, managed by Climate Alliance from 2015 to 2017, gave citizens and politicians a deeper understanding of global interdependencies by calling into question European overconsumption of natural resources and showing the way towards more responsible and globally fair consumption habits.

From 2018 to 2021, the project "Change the Power - (Em)Power to Change" worked on similar issues with a focus on localising the SDGs, engaging local authorities towards climate justice and questioning our consumption of energy.
