The Municipality of Kozani addressed the citizens of the future to jointly co-create the Climate Neutral City. Taking into consideration the importance of citizens engagement in the proposal of the Municipality of Kozani for the European Mission of “100 Climate Neutral and Smart Cities until 2030”, the floor was given to pupils and students.

In this direction, the Mayor of Kozani, Lazaros Maloutas and his associates have been at the Bioclimatic School of the Alternative Urban Planning Zone of Kozani, as well as at the 1st Lyceum of the city. Mr. Maloutas presented the terms, the advantages and the importance of the Mission and asked the pupils and students, who will be citizens in 2030, to love the environment and to protect it through their daily habits.

For their part, pupils and students referred to the reasons why they decided to join the Municipality and to strengthen the effort to achieve climate neutrality, while they were very informed and aware of environmental and energy issues. In the context of the process, they submitted their proposals for Climate Neutral Kozani.

It is worth noting that the students of the 1st Lyceum of Kozani are participating in the project “School Ambassadors of the European Parliament”, proving that with the support of their teachers, they have already become active European citizens.

The Municipality of Kozani expresses its gratitude to Mr Karafyllidis Apostolis, director of the 1st Lyceum of Kozani, as well as to the teachers who participate in the project “School Ambassadors of the European Parliament”: Solakidou Petty, Dalagiorgos Dimitris, Zambounidou Daphni, Karapatsiou Evaggelia, Theodoridou Ourania, Vomva Anastasio and Mastora Sofia.  Of course, warm thanks are addressed to Ms Marina Charisopoulou, director of the Bioclimatic School of the Alternative Urban Planning Zone of Kozani, as well as to the teachers Gobzia Georgio, Datsio Alexandro and Giota Eleftheria.

This action was implemented with the support of the Cluster of Bioeconomy and Environment of Western Macedonia (CluBE) in order to enable pupils and students of Kozani to co-design the Climate Neutral City.
