RESPONDET aims to improve the capacity of local and regional policy-makers, public administration, social economy and civil society to jointly develop (policy) initiatives which would strengthen social economy-driven community management of resources. The latter is considered a main element of (socially) sustainable green transition processes and a fundament for the resilience of local communities. The initiative will focus specifically on social economy-based local energy community initiatives as well as the circular economy.

Deliverables (examples):

  • 4 seminars bringing together local and regional authorities, social economy, civil society and other stakeholders;

4 local/regional action plans: Action Plan Catalonia; Action Plan Wallonia; Action Plan Torino; Action Plan Malopolska Region

  • Policy recommendations
  • European Policy Lab
