ICC launches its learning course on “Local Green Deals: A Governance Innovation to Accelerate the Twin Transition”
28 March 2024 - DEUICC  project
The Intelligent Cities Challenge (ICC) launched its new learning course titled “Local Green Deals: A Governance Innovation to Accelerate the Twin Transition”. The course is available on the EU Academy, an online learning hub with high quality educational resources produced by EU institutions and available to all those whose work is related to its sphere of action. It is open to all those keen to learn about how Local Green Deals can assist their cities’ growth.

This course is the first module of the EU Academy’s five-part series on Local Green Deals. The series will be developed over the course of the ICC (2023-25). It aims to provide participants with a deep understanding of Local Green Deals, an innovative governance approach designed for cities and municipalities to implement the European Green Deal at the local level and accelerate transformative sustainability action. 
The modules are specifically tailored for local ecosystem actors, including local authorities’ administrators and business stakeholders.

Learning objectives
  • Contextualise Local Green Deals as a governance approach to implement the European Green Deal at the local level;
  • Provide an overview and definitions of key concepts around Local Green Deals, based on the Local Green Deal Blueprint for Action;
  • Provide concrete examples, tips and advice from City administrators with experience implementing Local Green Deals in their jurisdictions.
