Climate protection is becoming one of the main concerns of citizens and they have demonstrated their will for urgent action. In response, the European Union proposed the new European Green Deal, but local authorities across Europe (such as municipalities) have already taken action to mitigate their carbon footprint. Their endeavour has mainly been supported by European, national, regional and local funds mobilised for the Covenant of Mayors action plans. Another important source of financial resources has been the funding provided by citizens in local projects.
