This month we’d like to focus again on #SDG7 (affordable & clean energy) and shine a light on a regional renewable energy transition player.

Across Germany, citizens have taken a direct stake in the transition to a cleaner energy supply through ownership of renewable energy installations. A common form are energy cooperatives like Bürger-Energie Rhein-Sieg. https://be-rhein-sieg.de/

The City of Bonn aims to be carbon neutral by 2035. HOW can we turn this goal together into reality? The initiative Bonn im Wandel recently submitted a citizen proposal to the City — Bonn4Future – Together for Climate — as a roadmapto to engage citizen partipation. https://bonnimwandel.de/bonn4future-wir-fuers-klima-buergerantrag/
