Climate Alliance Europe

A European network of cities for the protection of the world climate

A strong community for global climate protection

“Climate Alliance of European Cities with Indigenous Rainforest Peoples” is the European network of local authorities committed to the protection of the world's climate. The member cities and municipalities aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at their source. Their allies in this endeavour are the Indigenous Peoples of the rainforests in the Amazon Basin.

In order to contribute to the Climate Alliance, we rely on the commitment and the diversity of the local scale. We understand our initiative as part of the efforts around sustainable development and equity between North and South.
