Turning climate commitments into action

We are feeling the impacts of climate change here and now. IMPETUS focuses on increasing our resilience. Working with local citizens, policy-makers and businesses in our demonstration sites around Europe, our teams are analysing solutions, boosting knowledge, and creating packages of adaptation measures that other communities can use as a pathway towards a climate-neutral and sustainable future.

IMPETUS was launched in October 2021 with the objective: turn climate commitments into tangible, urgent actions to protect communities and the planet.
