Marketing Text Mayors and community representatives are facing quite a few challenges, when it comes to reaching climate protection targets. A stand-alone training course – which combines information and positions on climate protection from research, business, ecology, politics, and psychology – has been specially designed for community representatives, who are taken in 2 two-day course modules to the level of local climate protection managers.
Description The training course for local climate protection managers (Lehrgang zum/r kommunalen KlimaschutzbeauftragteN) has been introduced in Austria in 2007 and since then constantly been updated according to changes in the field and continuous evaluation by the participants. The course is most comprehensive and advanced and has proven strong interest for a target group which is not addressed by comparable offers. Technical lectures, group discussions and e-learning tasks convey special knowledge on the topic. Further each participant had to draft a project plan for the solution of a current problem case faced by the municipality. Finally involving a group in the development of a strategy completes the education to the local clipmate protection manager.
Target group decision-makers, municipal staff and decision makers in districts and municipalities, representatives on local and regional level, people who are interested in sustainability and active citizenship.
Result 23 educated local climate protection managers
Area of application Within municipalities and used by local authorities interested/involved in climate change, -protection, -politics and -activities
